How to use the Windows Reliability Tool


Recommended Posts

"When it comes to hidden gems in Windows, nothing beats the Reliability monitor tool, hidden behind a link inside of another tool that you don’t use either. Why Microsoft doesn’t shine more light on this really useful troubleshooting tool, we’ll never know.

Reliability Monitor tracks the history of your computer — 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." HTG

Mine doesn't look to good, but I know what happened!

Heya! Here's a update on my Reliability Monitor. I seem to be doing much better with my Computer performance. My thinking is that MS is doing a great job with the W10 Updates and that's helping. What do think think?? I think that W10 will be the best OS that MS ever built! I'm a big fan of W10 at this moment. That may change in the future. LMAO. You don't have to use Reliability Monitor; but IMHO, you're missing out on a great MS tool! Heya  @Steve K.

Would really like to hear your comments!;)

Hi There! I keep a close look on my Reliability Monitor! I haven't had any errors in 14 days. When I do get a error, I report it to MS. IMHO this helps MS make W10 a better OS with updates and patches. My performance has gotten much better then it use to be, and my thoughts are that sending my errors to MS has helped make a difference. Any way that's what I believe and I'm going to keep sending the error reports to MS. What are your thoughts? Do you use this windows tool to help you keep your PC maintained and running. Might want to give your Reliability Monitor a look  and see what's going on with your PC.;)

You may only get the error one time and if that is the case, you don't need to worry about it. However if it persists, you might want to see why you're getting the error! Here's a IE error I got . It was a one time error and so I'm not concerned.;)

Can you beat my 14 day record of 0 errors?? Show me!

Heya @Vadim Thanks for your reply. My system is running just fine also, but I still like to keep a eye on it.

Please share a screen shot of your Reliability Monitor. I would like to see how yours compares to mine!;) I'll be posting a screen shot soon that shows a perfect 10. I'll have to brag about that when it happens!xD

PS Thanks for your post. The only one so far on this thread!;)

Here you go as was promised, I'll have a perfect ten tomorrow . IMHO W10 is getting more stable every day and this graft is prof of that. I'm very happy with W10 and my thinking is it will get even better. The Reliability Monitor has a lot of interesting things going on and I think it can be a great tool for trouble shooting and maintaining your PC. Give it a look once in awhile. It doesn't cost any thing.xD. I double dog dare you to attach your Reliability Monitor graft and brag about your rig!;) Here's what HTG has to say about this windows tool and I agree! It's hard to teach old dogs new tricks, but I keep trying!;)

Windows Explorer can stop for a number of reasons. I want to find out why?

Ran CHKDSK /r /f   Found an issue with the HDD looking at the Log.

Said (repairing the Security File Record Segment)

Will now wait to see if Windows Explorer crashes again.

Hi @ACE I'll be watching this my friend. Here's my question! Isn't  Windows Explorer now called File Explorer? Why are we getting Windows Explorer errors.

That's one reason I didn't pay much attention to the error. My Reliability log cleared after the anniversary update, so I'm starting out new.

I'm sure you researched (repairing the Security File Record Segment)  It will be very interesting to see if Windows Explorer crashes again.

Very interesting reply. I think I'll run a chkdsk and see what I get!

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms832828.aspx

Here's my log. My HP printer failed after the anniversary up date and I had to reinstall it. I also had to reinstall my internet adapter after the upgrade. I think that's all so far. I'm still checking things out! It's looking pretty good so far! Oh yea and I had to disable Bluetooth!:D

You can do a net search to see the differences between the two.

Handy Hint.

                 Instead of searching for your CHKDSK Log, use Power Shell and it puts the log report straight on your Desktop.

In your Search box Type Powershell.exe and press Enter.

In the command prompt Admin box that shows copy and paste this.

get-winevent -FilterHashTable @{logname="Application"; id="1001"}| ?{$_.providername –match "wininit"} | fl timecreated, message | out-file Desktop\CHKDSKResults.txt

Sorry! Here's Information from Event Viewer! I think I'm good and I'm going to let it rest. Thanks for your help my friend. I learned some new things tonight! I didn't think it was necessary to run the /r /f unless you found some bad sectors. I'm do a little more research on that.

Thanks! ACE

      Teams kept crashing so I took a look at the event log and found this message just before it crashed.

      Any idea why Unarchiver.exe (which I assume was something to do with 7zip) is using so much virtual memory? that's 2.47Gb

      I've uninstalled 7zip but I keep getting the same issue, Windows Defender and Malewarebytes can't find anything, extremely frustrating to lose connection in meetings due to a random issue like this.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      Dear All,
      I use HP Pavilion 15-p003-tx Touchscreen laptop bought in 2014 with Windows 8.1 64-bit per-installed which I later formatted & did a fresh installation of Windows 10 Home Single Language edition 64-bit by downloading a legal copy of it from Microsoft's official website & burned it on a USB pen drive. I have set screen display to "Turn Off" after 1 min on Battery power & 3 mins when Plugged in. System will go into "Stand-by mode" in 3 mins on Battery power & 5 mins when Plugged in.
      Now, the issue is that whenever the screen display goes off, upon pressing any keyboard key or mouse touchpad - the display doesn't come back instead, it stays steady black both on Battery power & when Plugged-in. So I have to force Power off the laptop by hard pressing the Power button. Same applies when I try to Shutdown this Windows 10 system. Doing a force Power off repeatedly will damage the internal HDD someday or lead to Data corruption.
      There are 2 graphics cards installed in this HP laptop. One is an on-board of Intel & the other is of Nvidia GeForce 830M (See the enclosed pics).
      Kindly let me know what is the issue and how to solve this out b'coz even HP failed in resolving this issue.
      All the Updates related to Laptop & Windows are up to date and so is the Firmware (Pls see the enclosed pics)
      HDD is of 1 Tetra Bytes WDC and 4GB Ram with an Intel Core i5 processor (pls see the enclosed pic) than why does this Laptop perform very very slow especially during logon to desktop and while launching  any app or to search for something in the Windows Start Search bar or while opening Windows Explorer using Windows Key + E???
       
      Regards,
      Apoorva.

      Hey!
      I have a Lenovo ideapad 330 and it comes with a Realtek audio device built in. I have had the laptop for 3 months now and suddenly my sound stops. Only bluetooth still works. when I click on the sound icon at the bottom right, the help-wizzard audio appears. This one says they have no solution. and when I right click on the icon it says: speaker settings: UNKNOWN. and when I go to the sound settings of windows in the settings menu it says that no input and output devices are available. Also my Realtek audio device is not in the list with device manager. so i can't check the drivers or reinstall them. I thought I would solve the problem by implementing the new windows update (v 1903), but that didn't help. Also restarted several times. just for clarity .. the problem was already there for the update. I've been through the entire internet but can't solve it ... Can you help?

      Greetings Sem van de Beld
      Netherlands

      Hello,
      The improved magnifier in windows 10 is a very important tool for the visually impaired.
      The magnifier used to track the keyboard and mouse cursor without any problem until a few weeks ago when it stopped tracking keyboard cursor in both my PC and laptop.
      It does track the keyboard cursor in MS Office applications but does not do so in Chrome and other applications.
      Please advise,
      Avishay

      Hello, earlier today I was doing homework on my Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Windows 10 laptop and I got the little pop up that says battery is low. I ignored it like I usually did and then it said battery very low. This is usually where I get up and plug in the charger but sometimes I keep doing what im doing and then it dies and I realize I forgot to go get the charger. Thats what happened here. I left my computer open and went to get my charger. I plugged it up and waited a couple of minutes because it usually turns on by itself. I pressed the power button a couple of times after that and it still didn't turn on. I closed the computer opened it and pressed the power button and it didn't come on. I repeated this multiple times occasionally holding down the power button but nothings working. The little white light is still illuminating on the corner of the computer that signifies your computer is charging yet its not turning on. Any solutions/suggestions? Thank You!
