WhoCrashed Performs Postmortem For Windows Crashes
By on December 15th, 2008

Many users are accustomed to seeing a Blue screen of death (BSOD) in windows or towards sudden reboots, where Windows basically crashes and shows you a cryptic message (pun intended) which is hard to analyze for any lay computer user.

However the cryptic message does make sense, but only to engineers who are familiar with debugging the error. In such cases as a lay user you may leave the error as it is and continue using your computer.

WhoCrashed is a comprehensive crash dump analyzer freeware that will help lay users understand those error messages by deciphering it for you and allowing you to see which malfunctioning device drivers or kernel modules have crashed the computer. More about system crashes and kernel errors;

In reality, most crashes are caused by malfunctioning device drivers and kernel modules. In case of a kernel error, most computers running Windows do not show a blue screen unless they are configured to do so. Instead these systems suddenly reboot without any notice.

WhoCrashed shows the drivers which have been crashing computer with a single click. The program checks for available crash dump files and checks for responsible modules. In most cases it can pinpoint the offending drivers which have been causing misery on your computer system in the past. It does post-mortem crashdump analysis and presents all gathered information in a comprehensible way.

Definitely useful if you are curious to know what caused errors, or are looking to find and fix faulty device drivers before the system gets worse.
