    Can someone tell me what a Fault Bucket is, and do I need to be concerned about it.

    A fault bucket identification number is a number assigned by the system to identify specific types of errors, usually based on a specific application. You should see a corresponding error in the Event logs. The ID is what is sent to Microsoft when you send an error report.

    Incorrectly configured apps, badly designed apps that consume ram, viruses, malware and a number of other things can generate a fault bucket.

    The first step would be to click the "Event Log Online Help" link, (seen in your screenshots of your "Event Properties - Event 1001, Windows Error Reporting" windows).

    Unless you are suffering from bad system performance issues, it's not really worth the time to go through the Event Viewer's 200+ logs and get excited/worry about every error. It will drive you insane.

    "Fault bucket" a/k/a "Failure Bucket" in Windbg can contain very important information.

    e.g.,
    FAILURE_BUCKET_ID: X64_0x9F_3_NETw5s64_IMAGE_pci.sys

    That failure bucket would lead one directly to Intel's wifi driver - NETw5s64.sys, even though pci.sys was named as the probable cause of the 0x9f system crash.

    Regards. . .

    An error message in Event Viewer is not necessarily a problem. That's why I asked what the problem is.

    Thank You TonyB25. I was just concerned if it was something I had to worry about.
