Well, I've seen many cryptic error messages in Windows. 
Also, if you have the Microsoft programming environment 
(Visual studio) installed, it will start the debugger if 
you hit some bug in MS Word, for example.

I don't have much experience with freeware or shareware
programs for Windows, so I don't know what people are 
used to from that area.

We've had the link to the Windows troubleshooting page
from the Windows installation instructions for a long time.
I can't really see how that could be made much clearer.
