Are you looking at Reliability Monitor?

If so, you can click on the error (below the graph) and it will bring up the contents of the error in a new window.

Action Center to Maintenance to View Reliability History (in Windows 8). Windows 7 may be a bit different. You may use the instructions from Microsoft, however:

That screen shot is from Dell PC Doctor. The text looks similar to Reliability Monitor. The error says it might have come from Vpotray.  Some Dell device that sits in the system tray.

To get to Reliability Monitor, go to Control Panel, Action Center, pull down the Maintenance arrow and click on View Reliability History. That will give you the window I posted above.

Hi camtz,
<VProTray.exe> is part of the Symantec Norton software family. Are you using Norton Save & Restore or Norton Ghost or Symantec Backup Exec?

Hi John,
Been waiting a long time to say that...instead of thinkpads_user. :)  Regards, Joe

Yes, I use Norton Ghost for backups.  I will try and locate the Reliability Monitor now.

You only have one error in recent past which is nothing to worry about. It is the (apparently Dell) system tray application that has stopped.

If it does not occur after a restart (which also is apparently the case), there is no need to worry about it.

Applications and sometimes drivers "stop working" for one reason or another, and a singular event can normally be ignored.
