Download and install the driver for ... Windows Vista?

I received this curiously strange error message today, after Windows Vista on my desktop computer came back from a blue screen:

VistaErrorMessageAfterBlueScreen

It seems that Windows Vista is asking me to download and install a new driver to run … Windows Vista???

That's the same error message format that you sometimes see when a graphic card or other hardware device malfunctions and Windows recommends that you download and install a new driver for that hardware. But it appears that in this case Windows has a problem running itself...

You could always just download a different OS instead :-)

Heh. Did you "provide feedback" and "rate this response"? I've seen the error before (it was for some kind of service update), but it didn't stop me from sharing my feelings and thoughts in a graphic manner with MS.
