If your computer has ever unexpectedly rebooted and turned blue, or shut down without warning, you know how nerve-wracking that can be. Or, has your computer ever shut down as it's opening up, or suggested you work in "safe mode"?

Those "safe mode" messages often pop up after you accidentally turn off your computer without shutting it down. But when that happens for seemingly no reason, you may have an expensive problem on your hands.

It's normal to panic. You've got documents, financial information and photographs saved on your computer. What if they're all deleted? The problem is, you feel like there's not much you can do about it. So, you turn it off and on, and then try that again.

However, there's a better solution than that. It's called WhoCrashed. It'll scan through your computer to identify the problem, and it may suggest a solution.
