Create a BSOD on Demand

We all love BSODs, especially ones that do not happen on our own computers. Nirsoft has created a utility called StartBlueScreen on their web site that will produce BSODs on demand! In addition to the torment you can cause with this utility (psexec: hint, hint!), you can force a blue screen on a system to get a memory dump and then analyze the memory stack with WinDBG.

Update: Yes, this does work with psexec.  Try psexec -c -s \computerX \serversharestartbluescreen.exe 0x12 0 0 0 0
