What is Windows Reliability Monitor?
Windows Reliability Monitor is a tool that tracks important events during the service life of a Windows device, such as the installation of software and updates to the operating system. The tool also tracks when the device hangs, crashes or provides you with what is known as the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) or Stop Screen. All this is useful when troubleshooting devices, as you can view exactly what has happened since a device began experiencing issues. With this information, you can then figure out how to correct the issue.
You can launch Reliability Monitor in a number of ways. You can find it in the Control Panel under System and Security > Security Maintenance, in a link called "View reliability history." You can also find the tool through the Windows search box from the Start Menu. There, simply type the first few letters of it. Finally, you can launch the tool from the Windows Run Box. Click [Windows Key]+R, and then type "perfmon /rel" and press the Enter key.
