"Easy and Free way to find driver causing the BSOD"

July 25, 2014  |  By J710

 |  Version: WhoCrashed 5.01

Pros

Instead of using a whole bunch of utility programs to analyze and search the crash dump files to find out the cause of the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) or paying a computer technician a whole bunch of $$$ to fix the problem or replacing the software/hardware in your computer and etc. you can first download and run the Free WhoCrashed which shows the drivers that have been crashing your computer.

Cons

None that I could find. I mean WhoCrashed is Free so you have nothing to lose by trying it out.

Summary

I was getting a whole bunch of cryptic BSOD error messages such as BAD POOL CALLER or IRQL Not Less Or Equal on my Windows 7 system that I had installed several months ago. I had no idea what was causing the problem until I used the Free WhoCrashed program and it pointed out that the Adobe Type Manager (ATM) was involved with BSOD. Since ATM is not compatible with Windows 7, I uninstalled it and the computer is no longer crashing!

So if you are stuck with a computer that keeps displaying BSOD then use the Free WhoCrashed to find out which computer driver is problematic...You will probably save yourself a lot of grief and money in the process!

"Quick, Easy, and Accurate"

March 22, 2014  |  By ShadowsWalker

 |  Version: WhoCrashed 5.0

Pros

- Dependable
- Free to download
- Small download size
- Fixes the root cause of computer crashes
- Fast, accurate analyzation
- Easy to use
- Provides a solution to fix the stated problem

Cons

None that I found

Summary

As an individual who doesn't know a whole lot about dump files and kernels, this program was an absolute godsend. It's small in size to download, runs quickly, and accurately diagnosed the problem causing my PC to continually crash (corrupted kernel) and told me how to fix it. I am completely in love with this software.

Updated on Mar 22, 2014

Correction: the program tells you how to fix the problem. As I was re-reading my earlier review, I realised that the way I had worded it made it sound as though WhoCrashed fixed the problem itself; WC is a diagnostic tool, but tells you fairly precisely how to fix the problems it finds. Hope that clears up any potential confusion!

"Worked for me."

November 11, 2013  |  By DeAmesome

 |  Version: WhoCrashed 4.01

Pros

Identified the Driver causing the error.
Free.

Cons

None. It did what I wanted.

Summary

I was really worried and this quickly helped me solve my problem. I'd recommend using it first after a BSOD to see if you too have an easy to fix issue.

"Not that Great"

August 29, 2013  |  By custodianguard

 |  Version: WhoCrashed 4.01

Pros

easy to install, but that's it

Cons

shows you the dump files, but unless you upgrade to pro version it won't open the dump files so you can determine what's wrong. Ridiculous

"This is a must have for every computer !"

November 02, 2012  |  By pawpaw70

 |  Version: WhoCrashed 4.0

Pros

The program is quick and easy to use and will point you in the right direction, when troubleshooting your system.

Cons

I haven't found any cons. I have been using this system for about the last 3 years or so.

Summary

Before, when I was having crashes, the system pointed me in the correct direction, to troubleshoot the problem. However, after the problem was fixed, I didn't show any crashes for a long time. I was wondering if the software was still working ? On this latest version, I noticed under the tools button, you can actually manually create a test crash. I did and yes the software is still working ! Do follow the instructions, so you don't lose data !

"Extremely useful for troubleshooting BSOD"

October 20, 2012  |  By elstaci

 |  Version: WhoCrashed 4.0

Pros

Easy and simple to use. One Click diagnosis. Explains Mini-dump and Memory Dumps in a concise and terse manner. Its free and small. The best aspect of this software, It leads you to the general area that is causing the problems and in many instances the exact area.

Cons

Even Though it shows what main driver crashed and many times the 3rd party driver that caused the crash but sometimes it is very general and not specific enough. but it might be enough to show you what direction to take in troubleshooting your BSOD's.

Summary

Every time I have a BSOD or my computer freezes, On reboot, I run Who Crashed to find out what happened. Very useful program to have to troubleshoot your computer when it blue screens or freezes.

"it had promise, but it has been completely useless."

April 24, 2012  |  By EllisDee25

 |  Version: WhoCrashed 3.03

Pros

the very first time you run it, it gives some very good information about what might be causing your system to crash.

Cons

i have been using this for a year now on several different system and run it perhaps 40 times. every single time, without fail, it gives the exact same advise. that its probably a software bug and not a hardware problem. great, i knew that before. it can never identify the driver, but it will make a guess (yeah, the one mentioned in the blue screen, gosh)

Summary

Bug check description: This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

This tool is useless. You will probably have more success asking your elderly grandmother for advise on how to debug your system.
