First version of WhatIsHang is here

As I promised a few months ago, The first version of WhatIsHang is finally here.

WhatIsHang is a small tool that can detect applications that stopped responding (hang) and  displays some information that may help the user to understand what exactly may cause the hang problem. Currently, most  of the hang information displayed by WhatIsHang is designed for Windows experts and programmers, but I’ll gradually try to make it more friendly for all users, in the future versions.

    This looks very nice — will definitely check it out. Thanks!

    FYI – It would be better English to name it “WhatIsHung”. Apps which are not responding are considered “hung”. A hang is the event which occurred and the result is a hung app.

    Is there any help or troubleshooting info for this tool? My computer hangs due to issues with my video card, yet this program NEVER picks it up or has any info when the computer hangs. Just wondering if there is an action that needs to be taken during a hang/freeze and how to get the program to recognize it in the first place.
