How to learn to debug crashes for users (as opposed to what driver developers do)
1)  read the help file that goes with the Debugging Tools - it's got everything!!!
2)  read Windows Internals 5th edition by Russinovich, Solomon, and Ianescue - read it cover to cover a couple of times, you'll understand more with each subsequent read-through
3)  read Advanced Windows Debugging by Hewardt and Prevatt ( )
4)  learn to program in C+, then read the stuff at  to include (just found this link - and I'd already bought the book! :0).
6)  OSROnline's WinDbg forums:  Not very busy - but it's a wealth of knowledge!!!
