There are few things more annoying than Windows crashing or rebooting, and more often than not this is due to is an incompatible, corrupted or outdated driver. But which driver is responsible? That’s what WhoCrashed will try to figure out. This free Windows utility from Resplendence Software is going to tell you which driver caused the OS to crash.
Most of the time when Windows crashes it’s due to kernel modules or device drivers. When this software is installed and your PC crashes, this program will show you which driver was responsible, and it will also generate a crash dump analysis. The good part is that WhoCrashed presents the report in a clear and comprehensible manner so you can understand what’s happening.
When Windows crashes, you typically need a debugging tool to make sense of what happened, not to mention have knowledge of debugging in general. With WhoCrashed, you can get an idea of which driver is at fault and take the appropriate action. Getting the program to run is pretty easy too: if a Windows session has crashed and produced a blue screen, run WhoCrashed.
The application will then analyze what happened, taking a look at the dump files and provide an answer. Following its analysis the program will point out what drivers caused the problem and offer solutions. If your PC suddenly shut down or rebooted, you can also run WhoCrashed so it can check the crash dumps and get an idea of what’s happened. All of these are done automatically, so when there’s a crash, just run WhoCrashed and it will do the work.
