For WhatIsHang 1.20Publisher's description


WhatIsHang is a System Utilities software developed by NirSoft. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for WhatIsHang:

Sometimes, a Windows software hangs, the user interface doesn't respond anymore, and you cannot find out what is cause of the problem. This utility tries to Detect the software that is Currently hang, and displays some information that may allow you to understand what exactly cause the software to hang.

Most of the information displayed in the report of WhatIsHang, like Call Stack, Stack Data, Processor Registers, and Memory Data, is designed for users with Windows programming knowledge. However, WhatIsHang also displays a list of strings and dll files related to the hang problem, which can also help users without programming knowledge to understand the cause of the problem.

Using WhatIsHang

When you run WhatIsHang, the upper pane of the main window displays the list of all running applications that their user interface stopped responding. If WhatIsHang cannot detect any hanging application, the upper pane will be empty, until any hang software is detected.

When the hanging application is detected and you want to get the information about the problem, select the desired item in the upper pane, and then press F9. WhatIsHang will inspect the hanging application and will display all information the lower pane, as a Simple Text report.

Understanding The WhatIsHang Reports

First, you should be aware that there are 2 types of hang problems:
The program hangs in a single system/Kernel/API call. This means that the program request to do something from the operating system (like opening or reading a file) but the operating system function doesn't return back and thus cause the program to hang.
The program hangs because there is an infinite loop, very long loop, or recursive calls.
