Useful Tool - BlueScreen View for PC

BlueScreen View for PC displays the dump of errors and dump files as drivers list, and decodes the information on a blue screen of death, so one can analyze and fix the errors, using a simple Google search. This program is designed for those who face blue screens of death on Windows, and need to find a solution without destroying the operating system.

What does one need to use BlueScreen View for PC for?

BlueScreen View for PC is a useful tool that puts together a minidump of all files that are created when the computer crashes and the blue screen appears on Windows. By doing this, it preempts the imminent crash, giving users an opportunity to mend the issues and fix the errors that are showing up on the screen.

BlueScreenView works with Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, but requires Windows to be configured to save minidump files during BSOD crashes. On Windows 10, there might be some trouble viewing some of the Minidump files, and the BlueScreen View program may not be able to show these.

What are some of the main features of BlueScreen View for PC?

The program automatically scans the computer, looking for errors and issues, and creates a minidump on drivers. Upon scanning the list of minidumps, it creates a list of crash dumps, including details of the crash, like date/time, etc, so a solution can be searched for. Using memory trackers, the program is able to judge the exact drivers and minidumps where the crash has occurred, making it a lot easier for the user to find the issue.

Moreover, BlueScreen View for PC goes a step further and can also extract the version of minidump from the drivers, with important resource information on the product name, file version, company, and file description. By choosing the right minidump folder, one can also use the BlueScreen View to work with another instance of Windows.

The program does not require any installment, and there is also no documentation available, so the entire process is light and quick, and mostly automated, without much intervention. The only thing the program does not do in this case is to actually solve the issues. For that, there is Google.

Using the BlueScreen view, one can even monitor the crashes on a remote computer, which works well when working in a corporate environment or if one is away from the computer that needs to be monitored using the program.

What goes in favor of BlueScreen View for PC?

The program is extremely useful for the Windows operating system which is having issues with system crashes. One would experience a sudden crash, with a blue screen on Windows, which would then not be able to solve without external intervention. The BlueScreen View simply simulates this blue screen and shows the minidump of crashes and other relevant information, so a solution can be found before the actual crash, when it may already be too late.

The blue screen of death on Windows appears without warning, after which very little can be done to salvage the system as it is. It gets a bit more complicated than just restarting the system. The BlueScreen View for PC displays the error messages in a text format, which can easily be checked by a quick search on Google, and solved. In order to keep a record and find a solution for the errors, the BlueScreen View can also generate and save HTML reports, handy information that can help salvage the system from crashing.

In case one has admin access to a network of computers, they can easily view the blue screen views of all the computers in the network, and thus be able to determine exactly which computer(s) has the issue, and then resolve it. This makes things a lot easier than to search or use hit and trial on all computers in a network. To be able to do this, one needs to simply prepare the list of IPs in a text file, and the program scans the network for errors on all files and shows the specific information for them.

What are the factors going against BlueScreen View for PC?

The biggest drawback is that the software is available without any documentation, paperwork, warranty, or any obligation implied. The product quality and service are not assured, and one really does not know who to reach out to in case there is an error with the product. If there is any loss or damage to the data, or by chance, if the program were to be virus attacked, one simply would not know what to do next, or whom to get in touch with.

Also, while the program is essential to display error messages from a blue screen, one does need some sort of information and expertise to be able to solve the issues with the computer. Just by getting the program, users should not think that the computer will solve its own issues. The program is simply a display of possible problems, which it displays before there are an actual crash and a blue screen of death. However, it does little else other than that, and if one is not proficient with this level of computer language, it really doesn’t serve much of a purpose.

Some of the alternatives to the program are WhoCrashed, WinCrashReport, Makitoo (for Android devices), Crashlytics, Doctor Dump, WhatIsHang, to name a few.

What is the final verdict for BlueScreenView for PC?

Overall, BlueScreen View for PC is high on utility for users who would like to monitor their crash reports, and preempt blue screen for death information by viewing them on the BlueScreen View for PC. The program works well in the case of a network with many PCs connected, as one can easily see the computer with the error, and fix that. On the whole, this is a good program to use to avoid Windows from crashing or to fix the errors.
