How to solve Windows system crashes in minutes
Install Debugging Tools for Windows 64-bit Version
This primer will show you how to solve problems quickly. Using a tool that costs nothing, you can solve approximately 50% of Windows server and workstation crashes in a few minutes. The tool is WinDbg, the free Windows debugger.
You've probably never used the debugger, don't have it and don't want it. After all, it's a developer's tool, not an administrator's, right? Yes, but what you need to know is remarkably easy to learn, and even a rudimentary familiarity with the debugger could enhance your skills and your resume.
Still hesitant? Think about this: After rebooting a crashed machine, we've brought up the debugger, opened a memory dump file, given the debugger a single command, and learned not only that the cause was a driver, but also the driver's name — all in less than a minute. Granted, the debugger was installed and configured, we knew what commands to use and what to look for.
But so will you by the end of this article.
Capture text from Windows error dialogs.
Grabtxt is a simple utility that enables you to capture the text portions from many Windows dialog boxes. The captured text can be copied to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) or used to search for details via Google or with the provided shortcut buttons. The program can be useful if you need to copy an error message for a bug report or want to find out additional information via online search engines without having to manually type the text. Grabtxt worked with most, but not all, Windows dialogs that we tested.
Requirements: .NET Framework 2.0 W2000/XP/2003/Vista.
