Windows Vista: System Health Report

Windows Vista has some great diagnostic tools built-in to it. The System Health Report is one of the more useful ones. It gathers data from the Performance and Reliability Monitor, and displays in information packed report, and even highlights potential problems.

To run a System Health Report:
  • Open Control Panel folder, and open 'Performance Information and Tools'.
  • In the Tasks pane on the left, click the 'Advanced tools' link.
  • Click the 'Generate a system health report' link.
  • When the applications opens, you will have a UAC and user login prompt.
Each report can take 60 seconds or more to complete and display all the gathered information.
