Windows 8.1 Reliability Monitor

Thanks to Scott Hanselman’s tool list I started using the Reliability Monitor. It is located in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Action Center\Reliability Monitor. Below is a screenshot of the report on my computer.


Before the only days my computer had no critical events (red icon) was in the weekends. When the computer would not be turned on. There was definitely something wrong with my machine.

After fixing the issue with the video driver (on a Wednesday) my machine stopped producing critical events. Not that I notice any difference in performance, but the feeling is great!

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
