Microsoft Online Crash Analysis : Track Application Errors

If you experience a blue screen crash event, or Stop error, while using Microsoft Windows XP, you can upload the error report to their site for analysis.

When an application experiences an error that it is not prepared to handle, Windows XP stops the application and prompts you to send an error report. Then you can send the report to Microsoft Online Crash Analysis

It requires that both JavaScript and cookies are enabled in your browser (Opera, Mozilla works too!) and also a Microsoft passport account.

The FAQ says –

“Microsoft actively analyzes all error reports and prioritizes them based on the number of customers affected by the Stop error covered in the error report. We will try to determine the cause of the Stop error you submit, categorize it according to the type of issue encountered, and send you relevant information when such information is identified. You can check the status of your error report for 180 days after the date it was originally reported.”
