I also get a blue screen the second I run vzaccess, it also blue screens randomly if I just have the blackberry plugged into usb cable.
The same thing happened to me when I first tried. Delete the VZaccess program off the vista install, it only causes issues (BSOD's, locked up my 8703e, etc). Go into device manager and look under ports, remove the 2 Rim virtual serials ports. reboot.
Then install the desktop manager 4.2 which is the same version I used. Plug in the blackberry and let it re-detect the device. It will install the virtual ports again. Setup the DUN connection and choose the standard modem.
oaaltone isn't kidding, it's very picky. Load desktop manager, plug in the blackberry, then initiate the connection. When your done, disconnect from the DUN connection, unplug the blackberry, then close the desktop manager.
Any other sequence and I've managed to BSOD. It works well, kind of a pain, but doable until they release a new VZaccess update.
