MS: Debugging Windows Dumps

WinDbg - Tool for dump analysis or debugging

WinDbg provides source-level debugging through a graphical user interface and a text-based interface.

Usage: Use WinDbg to open crash dumps obtained from Dr. Watson or Windows crashes (blue screens). Once the crash dump has finished loading, many commands can be used to provide helpful information about the error.
The command !analyze –v performs basic exception analysis, reporting the error that occurred and the module in which it occurred. The command lmv can be used to show all of the modules loaded, including their full path and version information.

There is tool named as Digeus I always use it when there are problems with operational system. I also recommend to use Windows Tune Up Suite form Windsty. It eliminates system crashes, freezes and slowdowns.
