What are symbols
Symbols are names that software developers assign to various pieces of code. Debug Symbol files (symbols) are required to do both kernel and user-mode debugging in Windows. Symbols provide a way to resolve global variables and function names in the loaded executable file. Having debug symbols can make a huge difference when attempting to locate a problem in your application.

Patched builds such as Service Packs require a special set of symbols, that is a combination of the base build and the patched symbols.

The above and additional information on symbols can be found at Microsoft's web site .
