Blue Screen Of Death is the most famous and most annoying error of Windows because the Operating System just ceases to work suddenly giving a blue screen and some technical error code. The most annoying thing is that you wanted to see what was the error message but the system automatically restarted. So you don’t have anything left in your hands. You can’t analyze what went wrong. Windows creates a dump file which is only for technical people.
Nirsoft has developed a utility called BlueScreenView which comes in very handy in this situation. It reads the dump files created while the system got a blue screen. You can enable or disable the creation of this dump by going to the following Location:
