Find out more about your blue-screen crashes

It's the very worst of PC problems. One minute you're working away on your system, engrossed in something important, when suddenly a blue screen appears, complete with some incomprehensible error message. Then your system reboots and any unsaved work is lost. Frustrating, to put it politely.

NirSoft BlueScreenView can help you figure out why this is happening, though, by displaying all your crash dump files and letting you browse the contents. Double-click the last crash, for instance, and it'll display details including the file that Windows believes is responsible - very useful.

You'll also normally see the product name and company associated with this file, which should help you identify it. If this is a program you've recently installed, and it keeps causing crashes, then that's plainly a very bad sign - try uninstalling it, see if your system becomes more stable.

Crash analysis can be very difficult, however, and sometimes Windows will blame the wrong file. If BlueScreenView reports that a crash was due to some core Windows component, for instance, like the kernel, then this is probably incorrect. The program can still help, though, for example by displaying all the other drivers that your PC was using at the time. If your PC keeps suffering blue-screen crashes and you can't figure out why then NirSoft BlueScreenView could be an invaluable research tool.


A useful tool that deserves a place in everyone's troubleshooting toolkit

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.12

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.12 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
