If bash is doing something to crash your Windows 2000 then there is
something wrong with your Windows 2000.  That's a given with any modern
OS like anything with a Windows NT vintage (but not Windows 95 and its
variants of course).  User programs should not be able to crash an OS
unless you are running as a privileged user, and even then, it's not
real likely.

Likely candidates for your crash are hard disk problems, either with a
bad disk or corrupted disk, memory problems or other hardware problems,
a bad driver, your virus checker (disabled doesn't necessarily mean it's
not running), or corrupted OS files.
