BSODs (blue screens of death) and other crashes or errors on your PC can be very annoying especially if they keep reoccurring. Furthermore, what’s even more frustrating is that most of the time you don’t know what’s causing the problem so you can’t make them stop. WhoCrashed is a neat application that shows you the exact cause of the crashes, thus helping you find a solution for your problems.

WhoCrashed isn’t exactly designed for beginners, so if you don’t have some knowledge about how drivers and applications work (under the hood) it won’t really help you very much.
What this tool does is that it scans DMP files (which are basically logs about the crash) and identifies the source of the problem, telling you exactly which of your drivers or kernel modules caused the error. Having this knowledge will allow you to update, uninstall or find other fixes for the culprit, so that the problem won’t happen again.

There aren’t many drawbacks to using the tool except that its premium version seems a little bit expensive, but if you’re a “do it yourself” kind of guy or if you’re into coding, it’s definitely worth the price. Moreover, the interface is pretty clean so you won’t have any headaches from the visual aspect either.

WhoCrashed isn’t a tool that anybody can successfully use, but it can be a huge help for those who can. Additionally, the tool even has a “Home” edition which can be utilized without paying a single cent, so it’s definitely worth at least trying out.

Pros

  • Comes with a free Home edition.
  • It provides links and suggestions on how to solve the cause of a crash.
  • It also is capable of performing a Crash Dump Test.

Cons

  • None.

    Very impressed - allowed me to understand crashes were being caused by Norton Internet Security. These crashes had invalidated by system drive which was mirrored under Intel's Rapid Storage Technology and it did not react well to Windows crashes. Removed NIS and reinstalled. Problem fixed. Saved me days of work reinstalling Windows and all my applications.
