    Toaster.exe caused unexpected shutdown


    I have a Dell Inspiron 7537 running Windows 8 64bit. 8GB RAM, i7 processor. A little while ago it suddenly shut off. I went and checked the event viewer and got the info below. I think Toaster.exe is Dell's Backup and Recovery software, is that correct? Can anyone give me more insight into the error? I did not see any BSOD. Thanks!

    First, you'd have to take ownership of C:\Windows\Minidump, then enter that folder to see if there are any crash dumps there.

    Let us know if that folder even exists or not, and if there are files in it or not.

    Best to see if there is an update to Dell's backup software and install it if so, for now.

I put the computer to sleep two days ago. I turned it on today to find it was off as of a few minutes after I put it to sleep. I'm not sure how or why this happened, or if it will continue to happen. I should add that the battery was nearly full at the time so that can't be the problem.
