    The Top Windows Errors report shows historical information about the rate of Windows errors recorded on machines in your organization and how these errors were distributed throughout the month you select. In addition, the report lists the top 10 Windows errors in your organization.

    • What are the most common Windows errors in my organization?
    • Which machines suffer most from Windows errors?
    • Do I have a problematic server in my organization?
    • Do recent configuration changes to my environment cause any new issues?
