FWIW, you can enable local crash dump files as explained here. They can be useful in tracking down the cause of a crash. In particular, they can be opened in a debugger. My settings are these.

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps
  DumpCount : REG_DWORD : 32
  DumpFolder : REG_EXPAND_SZ : d:\work\LocalDumps
  DumpType : REG_DWORD : 2
