Are you frequently experiencing  application crashes, blue screen errors or sudden reboot problems? A memory dump file will be generated by Windows for every crash.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.




For those who don’t know how to use a debugger, download WhoCrashed Home Edition, a free Crash Dump Analyzer program from Resplendence Software.WhoCrashed shows the drivers which have been crashing your computer with a single click.


When  your system crashed ,the following error reporting dialog popped up on next restart.




By using this utility you do not need any debugging skills to be able to find out what drivers are causing trouble to your computer.  It relies on the Windows Debugging Package which will be automatically installed if it is not already installed on the computer system.




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 crash dump analysis and presents all gathered information in a comprehensible way.Who Crashed analyses Windows crash dumps and displays its findings in a notepad like window.




Previously, these problems used to be tackled only by experts with debugging skills, but now you can simply run WhoCrashed and you’ll know why your PC crashed and what should be done to prevent such PC crashes!

Note that WhoCrashed cannot be 100% sure about the driver which is responsible for crashing your computer. Because all kernel modules run in the same address space, a kernel module is able to corrupt another. Also, a driver may be able to cause problems to another driver which runs in the same device stack. So keep in mind this software is not guaranteed to identify the culprit in every case but most often it does.
