Reliability Monitor tracks the history of your computer ó any time an application crashes, hangs, or Windows gives you a blue screen of death. It also tracks other important events, like when software is installed, or Windows Updates loads a new patch.
Itís an extremely useful tool. And yes, itís in Windows 7 and 8Ö and even 8.1. It might be in Vista, but who uses that anymore?
