WhoCrashed Free Home Edition offers you an easy-to-use way of finding out which drivers were responsible for your computer crashing.

In reality, most crashes are caused by malfunctioning device drivers and kernel modules. In the case of a kernel error, most computers running Windows do not show a blue screen unless configured. Instead, these systems suddenly reboot without any notice.

WhoCrashed shows the drivers who have been crashing your computer with a single click pinpointing the offending drivers. It will perform a post-mortem crashdump analysis and present all gathered information in an understandable way.

Nice post Hotrod. I was not aware of this program, sounds like a great way to get yourself out of trouble quickly. The program does ID silent issues that cause spontaneous reboots, normally a b*tch to troubleshoot. Keep this one in your toolkit, it could save you a great deal of frustration.

(hint: many times reboots are caused by non-OEM video drivers including WHQL video drivers from Windows update, most often when you upgrade your O/S from what was included in your new system {I.E. Windows 7 -> Windows 10}).

I kept getting the BSOD last year and this app helped me figure out it was a bad stick of RAM. To get the most out of it make sure to let the BSOD do it's dump and restart on it's own for anyone out there having issues.

I've got a ton more useful apps like this one. I'll make sure they aren't already posted and share them.
