    it means that the operating system is not working properly or it has been overloaded
    the best way to remove windows crash is to reinstall it or use system restore

    A Windows crash is what happens sometimes when you crash your car, or when there is a strong earthquake the glass on your windows will break.

    It means that a hardware-based or a software-based problem has occured and Windows has been shut down or "crashed" to prevent damage.

    Its not because of one thing. There are many factors contributing tto it from a software to corrupted hard drive

    well Windows is out of working order (no mre stable finally shutsdown and perhaps refuse to reboot), this situation can be for many reasons:
    1. Hardware conflict
    2. Software
    3. BIOS settings
    4. Hard disk drives
    5. Fatal OE exceptions and VXD errors
    6. Printers
    7. Viruses
    8. Bad Ram
    9. Overheating
    10. Power supply problems
    11. Graphic card problrms
    12. Drivers corrupted

    when windows stops working or freezes then it is called a crash sometimes you will see the blue screen of death.

    Windows Operating System crashing ( shutdown,hung or restarting) because of some reason is called as windows crash. You sometimes end up with the blue screen of death . It happens because of many reasons. Some new driver which is not compatible can be one of the reasons..

    A crash in Windows means that a software program has either frozen or stopped working, or closed for an unknown reason. Hardware or software issues would be the cause. If the Windows operating system crashed, either hardware or software stopped working properly and Windows could not recover from the error.

      i am agree with you, windows crash means windows operating system corrupted/damage and can't be repair operating system. Sometime crash due to Logical Failures or Physical Failures. In-both of cases you lost your more important data.

      If you want to recover your data just follow the given instruction in following post : http://recoverlostdatatools.wordpress.com/
