How to Check Windows 7 reliability

I’ve already written about getting Windows 7 performance data using command-line options. Here comes another post on how to check the Windows 7 reliability by using the generated reports from the performance data.

 How to Check Windows 7 reliability It’ll take a few seconds and display a report. Now you can view the “Reliability Monitor”  report. You can gain access to the report from Control Panel options also.

 How to Check Windows 7 reliability As you can see in the above report, different information displayed related to “application failures, Windows failures, Miscellaneous failures, etc”. There is also a scale of 1 to 10. If you score higher on the scale, then your hardware and software is more reliable and similarly the opposite.


Reliability Monitor is an advanced tool that measures hardware and software problems and other changes to your computer. It provides a stability index that ranges from 1 (the least stable) to 10 (the most stable). You can use the index to help evaluate the reliability of your computer. Any change you make to your computer or problem that occurs on your computer affects the stability index.


As you can see, some information is also displayed on the “critical events” that occurred on that day or week. This shows the software events that caused the reliability index to go down.


As a conclusion, you can verify which software events or hardware events are causing trouble to the reliability of your PC and correct them, with any further solutions. This only gives a macro view of the reliability of your computer.
