Except he's not complaining about a slowdown, he's talking about a system crash. BSOD = "blue screen of death".

Almost certainly it's a hardware or OS issue, or maybe Excel dies if P-1 testing takes too much memory...

Nevertheless, I believe there is a Prime95 feature that lets you automatically suspend the program while another, specific program is running.
