Hell Yeah! Windows 7 is miles better than Vista, but then, it is still an Operating System and moreover it is still Microsoft! So, expect Windows 7 to crash just like XP and Vista. Early this year we had seen How to know what crashed your PC using a small utility – WhoCrashed.

The good news is, WhoCrashed tool has been enhanced and now supports Windows 7 as well! So now, you can know which driver or system process caused your Windows 7 to crash.

WhoCrashed is a comprehensible crash dump analysis tool. Whenever a computer running Windows suddenly reboots without displaying any notice or blue screen of death, the first thing that is often though about is a hardware failure. 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.

  1. My pc(running on windows 7) also crashed recently. But i didnt know the cause of it. I used a similar utility to find the error but to no avail. Lets see what this one does.

  2. thanks for the post, will surely use it when i start using windows 7, would also try some of my fixes that i have previously used on the older windows versions till date,

  3. Hi,
    I am getting the HP laptop with Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit installed but I am not getting the Win 7 installation CD.

    What should I do to be prepared in case if something goes wrong, my operating system crashes for whatever reason and I cannot use the PC at all?

    I had the original Windows 2000 CD for my old PC so I could always boot from it and re-install the OS from scratch.

  4. How does the tool find out where the crash dump is located ? And does it need the full kernel/memory dump option enabled or does it work with the partial dump also (This is the default on windows)
