Some people have been reporting (mainly people who use Norton Internet Security) that when they run the Speed Test applet (no matter where it's located) the computer crashes and gives them a fatal error deemed a "Blue Screen of Death" (BSOD error). For some reason, the program reads Java applets as security risks and agrees with it as much as you would a 9-day-old piece of pizza found under the couch.
The way around it is to just disable NIS when running a speed test. Then it runs perfectly.
