Windows 49.7?? was created by GvA
Will Windows work continuously for more than 49.7 days?

Here is a bit of information, which may surprise you all.
Windows crashes automatically if you don't switch off the machine for 49.7Days.
Microsoft accepts this. Do you know why? In Windows the Virtual
Machine Manager (here after referred as VMM) is responsible for
creation, execution, monitoring and termination of virtual machines.
This VMM, which is a 32 bit, protected mode operating system entity,
provides a number of system services at chip level. One of these
services is 'Get_System_Time'. This particular service loads the EAX
register with the time in milliseconds since Windows started on that
machine. This service isaccurate to 1 ms. EAX is a 32 bit register in
Intel 386 Processor onwards.

So the maximum number of milliseconds it canhold is (232)-1 =
4294967295 milliseconds = 4294967.295 seconds = 71582.79 minutes = 1193 hours = 49.7 days So after 49.7 days the EAX resets to zero. Most of the Drivers use this Time Service to keep track of the Timeout of various services they provide. So after 49.7days the d! rivers cannot use the get_System_Time function of VMM and they crash taking the OS along

i dont agree.

we have got a laptop that has been connected to broadband, playing our favourite radio station for the past 15 months without rebooting. We also use this particuar laptop to download music and films. This has become a spare computer since my friend got a new one from his company.
