ToolTip: BlueScreenView

Anyone who uses Windows has seen at least once a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). Even Bill Gates had to deal with it (watch this video). NirSoft has released a utility called BlueScreenView that scans all the minidump files that are being created when a BSOD occurs and displays all information about these crashes.

The utility is FREE and does not need to be installed. A detailed description of BlueScreenView can be found here
