Reliability Monitor

In previous versions of Windows, the only way you could tell whether your system was stable was to think about how often in the recent past you were forced to reboot. If you couldn’t remember the last time your system required a restart, you could assume that your system was stable. Not exactly a scientific assessment!

Windows Vista changes all that by introducing the Reliability Monitor. This new feature is part of the Reliability and Performance Monitor, which I discussed in more detail in Chapter 14 (see “Using the Reliability and Performance Monitor”). You load this Microsoft Management Console snap-in by pressing Windows Logo+R, typing perfmon.msc, and clicking OK. In the console window that appears, click Reliability Monitor.
