Crash (computing)

A crash (or system crash) in computing is an event where a computer or a program ceases to function properly, often exiting after encountering errors. Sometimes the offending program may appear to freeze or hang until a crash reporting service documents details of the crash. If the program is a critical part of the operating system kernel, the entire computer may crash. Many crashes are the result of the execution of a single or multiple machine instruction.
