Of most interest to us non programmers is the faulting module listed under Bugcheck Analysis (what caused the error). In this case, it is a system file and not a driver or application.

Probably caused by : win32k.sys ( win32k!UserGetRedirectedWindowOrigin+28 )

Debugging tools can help you greatly when troublshooting BSODs for example. When properly configured, the BSOD will generate some dump on your disk and using debugging tools you can analyze that dump finding which driver or dll caused the problem.
It's not just simple, you should know something about how the system works on low level. I can recommend the book from David Solomon and Mark Rusinowich called Windows Internals. Difficult reading, but if you learn all of this, you will become a wizard:-)
