I'm in Visual Studio trying to get work done, and get the error "VSHost.exe crashed!" So I keep ignoring it

Then now everytime I start VS2008 and start working on a project I get the following blue screen:

STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC000001D, 0x80573002*, 0xF78E6840, 0xF78E653C)

Btw VSHost.exe was crashing in the mscorwks.dll

This is probably unrelated to Visual Studio, I'd guess. Debugging user-mode applications doesn't grovel around in the kernel where a BSOD happens. –  Јοеу Apr 4 '10 at 6:47

0x0000007e = SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

The exception is 0xC000001D = Illegal instruction

I think you should have the minidump file. please try to use the debugger as described in this article and show us the result of !analyze -v

I'll try to follow up this post if you can provide more information.
