WhoCrashed looks for crash dumps stored on your PC and analyzes them for the most likely culprit of the blue screen of death (BSoD).

Pros

Fast: Analyzing crash dumps with WhoCrashed takes a very short amount of time. In our tests, it took the app less than a second to analyze each dump.

Helpful reports: Rather than just spitting out a few words and some error codes, the software actually generates reports containing as many details as it was able to gather in order to help you take the next step. While it is up to you to actually resolve the issue, WhoCrashed may provide suggestions and recommendations.

Crash dump test: In addition to analyzing your crash dump files, the software can also cause an intentional crash (BSoD), so you can test if your PC is generating the crash dumps without any issues. Don't be alarmed that the app will randomly crash your computer, however; the developers have put up many disclaimers on the option's screen and even make you type the word "ACCEPT" prior to initiating the crash.

Cons

Poor visuals: From the moment you start using it, the app's interface shows its age. From the Windows XP icons that are used all over to the sub-optimal spacing and layout, it is clear that the developers don't see interface design as a priority.

Works some of the time only: In their crash report conclusion the developers make a well-founded statement that the information the app provides might not be accurate, since it has to account for an infinite number of variables, including new PC setups we will see in the future. In that sense, this diagnostics tool currently cannot replace the expertise of a human computer technician.

Bottom Line

Do you have a PC that experiences regular crashes? If so, you can try to troubleshoot the problem with the help of WhoCrashed. Thanks to its detailed crash analysis, this application will likely help you determine which device driver is incompatible with your computer and causing problems.
