Windows Error Lookup Tool helps you understand Windows error codes

Truth be told, many of us stumble upon different error codes while working with the Windows OS. At times, the error codes are thankfully descriptive enough to make some sense – as is the case with most Blue Screen error codes. But at times, you might feel bewildered seeing just the error code or an error message which does not make much sense. It is at such times that the Error Lookup Tool can help you look up various Windows error codes and translate them into comprehensible text description.
