"Event Log Explorer" tool helps manage/analyze/report on your Windows Event Logs

Question: "Event Log Explorer" tool helps manage/analyze/report on your Windows Event Logs

Event Log Explorer
A tool to help Manage, Analyze and Report Windows Event Logs
For Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 operating systems​
This is a simple, "starter" guide to help use this tool. (Note this tool will only work on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003. It will not work with Windows Vista.) Download and run Event Log Explorer.

One time initialization

Click Tree->Show Tree
Click File->New Workspace
Click File->Save Workspace As (and save your workspace file anywhere you choose)
Example: To Filter / View / Export Recent Error and Warning Log Events

Open an Event Log
>> (e.g Typically, you only need look at the System Log (for System event records) and the Application Log (for Application related events)
Filter the events you want to see (for this example we filter to only see Non-Information events that occured in the last 7 days)
>> Click View->Filter.
>> Uncheck Information. Towards the bottom of the filter window, look for ?Display event for the last? enter 7 days. Click OK
Click File->Export Log to save a copy of the events for later viewing or sending to others
>> Check: Text file, All events, Event Description
>> Uncheck Export Event Data
>> Check Close dialog when done
Click Export and save as a txt file on your Desktop
Help Troubleshooting an Event

Double click an event to see the "Event Description" (which provides more detail about the event)
Click Event ID Database button for an web page about the event to get general explanation/additional information about the Event
Look for and click hyperlinks in the Event ID web page for user comments on the event
You may note that some additional automated help is available via subscription service. I've never tried using the subscription service myself. I think what's available for free from the tool plus a little manual internet surfing will likely get all the same information.

Preferred Solution: "Event Log Explorer" tool helps manage/analyze/report on your Windows Event Logs

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: "Event Log Explorer" tool helps manage/analyze/report on your Windows Event Logs

I use the subscription to EventID.net. It has been greatly helpful. I don't have this analyser but am a big believer in using the Event Viewer. I'll add a description I have written up which will help in determining the Events: This may be useful in addition to the Event Analyzer.

One thing I have not been able to do is keep the filters set with the software in the OS.

Find the Error(s)in the Event Viewer that correspond to the crash/freeze/error message/blue screen, etc.:

Description of the Event Viewer:




Unfortunately, many Windows XP users aren't aware of the Event Viewer, what it is, where it is, how it can help with a problem:
The Event Viewer has logs for everything that happens on the computer. There are three sets of logs: System, Applications and Security. By opening the first two to display the Events, you can look for Errors that correspond to the time of the problem- in your case, the crash.

There are three types of Events in the System and Apps logs:
1. Information (white circle w/blue i): this is just basic documentation of the normal working of the System or Apps.
2. Warnings (yellow triangle w/black exclamation mark) noting some problem at that moment. Warnings usually resolve on their own. If they do not, they become>>>
3. Errors (red circle w/white X- they document something that didn't work or isn't happening as it should. Each Errors has three parts: an ID#, a Source and a Description. By doing a right click> Properties, the Error will open to a screen that can be copied. These three parts taken together can usually lead to cause and resolution.Click to expand...

Start> Run> type in eventvwr
Do this on each the System and the Applications logs:
1. Click to open the log>
2. Look for the Error>
3 .Right click on the Error> Properties>
4. Click on Copy button, top right, below the down arrow
5. Paste here (Ctrl V)

You can ignore the Categories 1 and 2. If you have a recurring Error with same ID#, same Source and same Description, only one copy is needed. You don't need to include the lines of code in the box below the Description, if any.

Hello
I am new to Microsoft Message Analyzer and just downloaded version 1.4 and installed on my Windows 10 laptop
I saved my Windows System Event log as an .evtx file to have some data to start looking at. I note the column entitled 'summary' appears to show the body of the event message. However I see many rows which state "unable to retrieve the event description"
in this column, what do I need to do to fix this issues please? could it of been the way that I saved the .evtx file in the first instance (I accepted the defaults) or do I need to install some additional files/components so the messages are displayed
correctly?

Thanks all

Hi, I recently made some upgrades to a (previously fine) PC - they were

- Installing 4GB extra RAM, of the same variety
- Reinstalling windows on a new SSD (a Samsung SSD 850 EVO 500GB)

I previously also upgraded to Windows 10, but a bunch of blue screens and other issues later I reinstalled 7. I'm still having problems though - the current symptoms are that every so often (1-3 times a day) the computer will hang for ~1-2 minutes on the 'starting windows' screen. When it finally loads, it will often hang for further extended periods before settling down. I checked in these event log and during these periods there will be many 'atapi' errors, with Event ID 11 "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0." (I have attached a screenshot).

There will sometimes be other errors, usually relating to the timeout of certain things, but the previously mentioned error is by far the most prolific. On rare occasions there have been more serious errors - never blue screens since going back to windows 7, but once I booted to a black screen with just a mouse (was able to shut down via task manager then following a restart seemed ok).

Through some investigation, it does seem to be that the root cause of the problem is the SSD; I identified this a while ago and have tried various fixes, including:

Hi

After i have removed some spyware/trojans I starting getting this error message when I try to access the eventlog:

event log "unable to complete the operation on" eg. system "the interface is unknown" windows xp.

Also I can add programs to Symantec internet security 2005 firewall, reinstalling don't fix it. Some programs also start to fail, "bad image" or you don't have admin premissions.

Reinstalling SP2 or using system restore for XP don't fix any thing.

I have scanned my computer with 4 antispyware programs, and 4 antivirus programs and check it with hijackthis so my machine should be clean.

Does any one have any Idears?

Answer:event log "unable to complete the operation on" "the interface is unknown" windo

maybe you removes something with hijackthis which your system needs

go to start, run and type "sfc /scannow"
then it will rpompt you for the XP CD, put it in and let it scan your computer for corrupted or missing files

Answer:Where are "ModemRingOn" and "PME Wake Up Event" located in bios?

BIOS's vary widely; there is no standard features that are included. It's possible your BIOS has neither of them.

If these are features you are interested in exist, the first thing to do is to check the motherboard manufacturer's web site's "support" page, and find out what the latest version of BIOS is available for your motherboard, compare that to what you actually have on your motherboard, and then read the change log to see if possible these features were added.

You can also research these features by Googling the text "ModemRingOn" and the model number of your motherboard "GA-XYZ123" in the same search, in order to filter hits that are limited to those that include references to both of these qualities. Look for forum posts, and other technical sites & information.

Also, look for the User Manual for your motherboard on-line. Sometimes these include information on the BIOS of the motherboard.

My computer recently started having issues........ here is what is going on:
* boot computer
* Windows boot screen displayed ~ 1 minute
* screen goes black. Can move mouse. Drive light constantly on, not blinking. ~ 5 minutes
* log in screen comes up / log in
* Desktop loads ~ 1 minute
> sometimes it loads with regular windows aero theme other times it loads with basic windows classic theme.
* Error message pop up "failed to connect to System event notification service"
* Have to wait for about 5 more minutes before computer is actually usable
* The audio service does not work as well...
from when I press the power button to when I can actually use my computer takes 10 - 15 minutes.

Here is what I have tried so far
*Turning off all start up programs / services
*Tested Memory - passed
*Hard Drive Self Test ---- # 1 - 7 fail / I am guessing that this is the source of the problem, however my computer does still work once everything is finally booted. So I don't know what to do with that information or if that test even matters.
* I have tried looking at the event viewer but every time it says that the event log service is unavailable.
> I try turning on Windows Event Log but that does not change anything
* tried "netsh winsock reset" in command prompt, based on a different thread that I found - it didn't work

Answer:Windows failed to conect to " system event notification service"

This seems to be a common problem, I am now also experiencing the same.
I have Win 7 Home Premium 64. Did chkdsk /r, defragged, tried sfc/scannow scanned for viruses and even tried reseting winsock.
My aero themes are greyed out, when trying to fix it with MS fixit it errors out.
It takes a long time to boot and then says "failed to connect to System event notification service"

One search on google will show this is a major problem, so why does MS not come out with a fix.
This seems to be the biggest frustration with Win 7 compared to XP, lack of support from MS.

Today I booted up my laptop to get this screen - my desktop without an aero theme and the error message on-screen.

Nothing unusual happened last time I used my PC. No installation or updates that I am aware of.

The computer cannot shut down properly now either, it just hangs after the desktop icons are gone. I am forced to hard shutdown.

Please Help !

My HP running Vista Home Basic suddenly gave me the following error message on startup: "Failed to connect to a Windows service: Could not connect to System Event Notification Service".
Among other things, this prevents me from connecting to my internet network, so I can't get on-line.
Rebooting did not help.

Following the google search I used an elevated command prompt (click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator) and typing "NETSH WINSOCK RESET ", then press the Enter key, and then restart the computer.

I still cannot access my internet network, instead of not connection now I get the message "unidentified network" and I still cannot go online although there I have some Mbs

It sais (I do not understand this text )
"What netsh winsock reset command does are it resets Winsock Catalog to a clean state or default configuration. It removes all Winsock LSP (Layered Service Providers) previously installed, including the potential malfunctioned LSP that causes loss of network packets transmission failure. So all previously-installed LSPs must be reinstalled. This command does not affect Winsock Name Space Provider entries."

Please help me with the next step in order to be able to go online from my computer.
Thank you!

Hello.

I'm having a peculiar problem that just started yesterday out of the blue. Suddenly when I boot up in Windows 7 (64-bit), there's always an open dat file titled "win403700" that greets me on my desktop. It's of no use to me, since it's filled with lines and lines of code that are completely encrypted in notepad.

After running CCleaner to clean out my registry and hard drive, followed by over two hours of sytematically uninstalling programs, disabling startup items, and then finally moving on to msconfig items under the services tab, I was able to determine that "Windows Event Log" is what causes this to pop open with each new startup. (I assume everyone has it enabled under msconfig > services.)

Would anyone know why it is doing this? If I can just disable it and forget about it I will, but based on what I'm reading here, it appears to be an essential process for updating Windows:

Windows Event Log - Process and Service wiki

Plus I would like to know if this is an indicator of a more serious problem. (A Malwarebytes scan did come back clean by the way.)

Thanks.

Answer:Windows Event Log causing "win403700" to autostart at boot

I am having the exact same problem, also on Win 7 x64 except that the file that's popping up in notepad for me is "win403750.dat."

Most of the file is binary gibberish but there is a string near the beginning that reads "This program cannot be run in DOS mode," which makes me think that this .dat file is an executable. I've tried renaming it to an .exe extension and running it, but Windows says that the file isn't compatible with the version of Windows I'm running. An ESET scan of the file comes out clean.

I also distinctly remember that this started happening after the latest Windows update(s) I ran 1~2 weeks ago.

Three times in the last 24 hours this warning has opened on my Desktop, after I have just closed Windows Live Mail [WLM] . After the warning disappears from the Desktop, WLM opens yet again.

Naturally I've allowed the issue to be reported to MS and sent the information, but I note that there is also a File that describes the event, in this case:

C:\Users\Tony\AppData\Local\Temp\WER21C8.tmp.hdmp

Is there any way that I may attempt to either fix or resolve this issue myself? For starters, I haven't a clue about how I access the quoted File, and if I did, I don't know what to do with it anyway.

Or is this yet another of those situations where you just grin and bear it until MS come up with something to resolve the issue? Hope not 'cos it's mildly annoying...

Answer:"Windows Live Mail has stopped working" - Files describe event; Fix?

1) Ignore error message.
2) Do a "repair" of Windows Live Essentials via Programs and Features
3) Use the Disk Cleanup utility
3) Use sfc /scannow via the command prompt window.

I recently came across a "corrupted" laptop (love how people call things to do with computers corrupted when they can't figure out how to fix it) to fix, it's a Dell Latitude D630 with windows xp home installed.

When i got it, booting up to windows would result in blue screen error after windows xp loading screen 100% of the time in normal mode, and would hang on mup.sys in safe mode (left it booting into safemode for about 6-7hours while i slept at mup.sys and never loaded past it). I decided to do a repair install, got through it all perfectly fine, entered the product key from the sticker on the bottom, worked fine. Booted up again, got past the xp screen to login screen and got the message "this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can log on" can choose "Ok" or "Close" i believe, basically yes or no.. reguardless of what i click, it loads into windows to the desktop, and does not load anything else. ctrl+alt+del doesn't bring up taskmanager. in safemode everything works how it should, msconfig running processes are all normal, nothing out of the ordinary, as well as in services, closed everything except critical processes/services, made a new user as well and logged into that account, get the same activation message and loads to desktop with no icons and still no ctrl+alt+del/start menu/icons/any keyboard shortcut, however windows security center popped up on new account saying there was no anti-virus (woo...

Shown below is the Windows 7 event log, and I would like to know what the error means, and if I should be concerned? My guess would be that this is affecting performance or perhaps just a symptom of other problems? The system isn't overloaded with garbage or viruses or system-tray apps or anything like that. Even if someone could give me a starting point, that would be much appreciated!

Whenever I launch Event Viewer, I get this message. Ditto when I try launching Computer Management. I sometimes get a message about Adding a snap-in to console. But it never works. I ran SFC SCANNOW and it fix some stuff requiring a restart and is running clean now. No improvement.

I tried going back to an image from several weeks ago. Event Viewer worked but when I ran SFC SCANNOW and restarted, it stopped working again. If I run mmc.exe, I get a single folder Console Root. Trying to launch Event Viewer from the File menu crashes it. Running services the same way works. Running Component Management crashes.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Answer:Windows 7 x64 "Event Viewer has stopped working"

Check your system for BUGS. It is infected. That or the hard drive is corrupted and starting to fail.

These things don't Just Happen. Windows 7 is a very good operating system and does not have these problems unless something causes them.

Hi Ridakash, Welcome to SF,

You could try this ShellExView

The rule is to disable non-Microsoft context menu handlers *one-by-one* and verify if the problem is solved. If disabling one does not solve the problem, undo the disabled item and disable the next non-Microsoft handler. Do the same until the problem is solved and finally identify the culprit. Scroll right to see the Company Name column in ShellExView.

If that didn't help

Download this attachment Attachment 50723 Save it under C:\Windows\System32\

Go To Start > Type Regedit and do a search for CompMgmtLauncher.exe

Mine was located here.
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Manage\command]

Under this key you will find a line that ends in CompMgmtLauncher.exe
Change the exe to bat and Manage should now work.

Hope this helps,
Captain

Hey guys, the solution is simple - just increase the max file size! Go to:

The MaxFileSize key is a DWORD with a default decimal value of 20. Increase this to, say 60, and the problem will go away.

I googled this and found two different threads where someone suggested to rebuild the performance counters. Both responses were basically the same, below is one. Neither of the OP's came back and said if this worked for them.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Re: LoadPerf 3011, 3012
Hi-
I had the same problem with LoadPerf and here is what I found out:
All performance counter names and explain text are maintained in string tables managed by the performance counter subsystem (Perflib).

The current contents of the performance counter string tables are corrupted and cannot be displayed. To correct the problem, rebuild the string tables.

User Action
To rebuild the string tables, on the computer that displayed the message, at the command prompt, type Lodctr /r
The contents of the string tables are automatically rebuilt.

I hope this helps
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Since this was from 2008 (XP?) and the other response was for Vista I wanted to see if the guru's at SevenForums thought that this was okay before I did this.

Here are the screenshoots of my two errors.

Answer:After BSOD Event Viewer Logs Event ID 3012 and 3011 every time I boot

Rebuilding the string tables as outlined in my first post fixed the problem.

After too many unexplained problems, I decided to reinstall Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and migrate off of SBS 2011 Standard. In addition to the primary workstation that can't read any event logs, I built five Server 2012 R2 servers (Hyper-V host, Active Directory
VM, Exchange 2013 VM, SQL Server 2014 VM, and WSUS VM).

I was diagnosing why my workstation's Outlook cannot reach the local Exchange Server.   I tried to look at the event logs, and found the
Event Viewer cannot open the event log or custom view.  Verify that Event Log service is running (it is) or the query is too long (whatever that indicates).  The request is not supported (50)
Looking at the directory of the event logs folder.  It appears that most logs are empty, which is understandable since it's a rebuilt installation.  I found a small number of Applications and Services Logs and it appears nothing was logged since
six days ago on 4/4/2016.   On support forums, I found many have this exact problem on Win 7, Win 8, and Win 10.  Of the solutions posted none of them would even execute on my Win 8.1 Pro x64 machine.  I tried clearing the event logs (WEVTUTIL
CL logfilename) and am told Failed to clear log .... The request is not supported. 
It's very difficult to diagnose why Outlook 2013 cannot reach Exchange 2013, even if Outlook is installed on the Exchange server machine (just as a test).  The web-based Outlook owa, ecp, ... all work fine. ... Read more

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:





I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

Hello all. Seems like I have managed to screw up the default "Administrative Events" in the Custom Views section of the Event Viewer. I filtered it for warnings, etc., intending to save as a new definition, but in fact managed to apply the filter to the default definition itself. Doh! Now, I can't unfilter or delete it - the options are greyed out in the editor. Anyone know how to reset that item to default?

Using build 1703. Must be a bug that permitted me to edit that view in the first place?

Answer:Event Viewer Error The Open Procedure for service "ESENT" in DLL

I figured this out, nothing was wrong with Windows 10, running sfc /scannow returned no errors.

I ended up removing MSI Gaming App because they have yet to correct whatever is wrong, this got rid of that event for me.

I opened CCleaner and under Startup I figured some program must be causing these errors since I'd been clearing the event logs using Clear_Event_Viewer_Logs and they only occurred at startup. I discovered MSI Gaming App didn't remove it's startup entry neither did CoreTemp remove its scheduled startup (I took it off because I'm using Secure Boot and it isn't yet licensed to work with it.)

After deleting those I have no more errors. None. Really annoying!

Hello All - I ran into an issue where Outlook 2010 (Calendar) does not show certain options for a Calendar Event. Meeting that has been received and accepted, when opened does not have option of "Respond" and once that button is clicked drop down menu should display "Reply, Reply All... Reply with IM, etc."

Here is the screen-shot of it and how it is supposed to look like.. just not seeing it on my computer:
Note: I did notice when someone schedules an appointment in Calendar this option is not available; but other meeting invites co-worker of mine does have and I don't. Complete the same environment, same machines, same OS image (W7 64-bit Enterprise - company computers). Also, company IT is looking into this and so far they have not been able to find the culprit of this issue.

Thanks all!

For the past few weeks I've been having this strange issue with my computer. I would be doing something like browsing the internet or playing a game. Then I would go to access some media files such as music or video's on my media drive and my computer would start acting up. The symptoms I would get is the sound would buzz and scratch, the screen would freeze and stutter, and repeat this every few seconds until my hard drive fails and loses connection all-together.

Then I would have to restart my computer to get my drive back and POST displays that BOOTMGR is missing. I would have to go into BIOS to reset the Boot Order to get my system to boot up and I would get my media drive back.



At first I thought my hard drive was dying, so I took it out and plugged it into another computer to troubleshoot it. Everything seemed to work fine. I even went to the lengths of purchasing a new hard drive, but have yet to install it. I then realized that my video drivers started to act up and crash so I updated those. I believed I had a beta driver and once I got a WHQL driver the problem went away. At least until now...

A week later I was on facebook listening to some music and I went to browse my media drive and to my surprise it instantly started stuttering and freezing again. I'm at the point where I don't know what else to do except replace the drive which I'll probably end up doing this weekend.

Answer:System freezes, HDD fails, Event 51 "error during paring operation"

First, change the title of your post. That should be PAGING, not PARING. A lot of people will skip the post not knowing what that is.

All errors indicate a dying hard drive as you suspected. The fact that it works without error in another PC raises the possibility that you may have power supply problems (insufficient power to the drives will produce the same errors), bad cables, or a problem with the SATA controller on the motherboard.

How many physical hard drives do you have in this PC? (Not to be confused with partitions on the same hard drive). If more than one physical hard drive, which one is the problem drive?

since about 3 months ago, my computer has been experiencing multiple BSOD's per day. upon looking in the event viewer, ever single time and event with something to do with a "VSS service" is the last thing before the crash. i find this strange, as looking into this, vss is a backup program for xp and server 2000. i have no idea why this is on my system, what it does, or why i need it. after trying to use some debugging tools, it seems that i cannot access the .dmp files on my own computer, logged in as an administrator, with full privileges, with all file security options in my anti-virus off. my system is a x32 vista business. the crahses occur almost at random, doing anything from playing a game, using Firefox, typing a notepad file, or just leaving the thing on and not doing anything for more than 10 minutes. the system will still crash at the log in screen, leaving me to believe that this is not an overheating issue. i have tried to disable all programs with mscofig, but i still get a crash. i have even had crashes in sleep mode, as well as in the process of a normal shutdown. i have no new updates in windows update, and have installed all of the new drivers for every device i can find them for. any and all help would greatly be appreciated.

I receive this error message in the Windows System log regularly. Device Manager does not show any malfunctioning devices.

Apparently csvol service is part of HFS+ for Windows. This is a program that allows reading of HFS+ file systems on Windows. I did install that.

And I believe these Event ID 7000 errors are related to a service failing to start. maxView Storage Manager Agent service will not start. It is set to 'automatic start' in the Services viewer app. However, I find that it is not started, and if I attempt to start it manually, I receive a message stating it started and then stopped, "Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs." That should not be the case with this service.

I'd greatly appreciate any help with this!

Event traces uses the timer/information gathered from the Event Tracing for Windows subsystem (ETW). This is the same sort of information you'd get from taking traces using xperf or xbootmgr from the Windows Performance Toolkit. Not to the depth you'd get, but fairly close.

The problem is with a driver usbhub.sys. Hopefully this can be fixed quickly. Remove all of your usb hardware, printer, usb drives etc. If the system does not crash reinstall one by one, giving the computer time to crash before installing the next.
If this does not work, go to device manager and uninstall the universal serial business controllers one by one. Reinstall before uninstalling the next.Hopefully this will solve your problem
Before taking any actin make a system restore point just in case

During my attempt to troubleshoot some Vista behavior, I checked the logs in the event viewer. While doing that, I noticed under "Security" that the log was humongous. The reason? Every minute, there is a "Special Logon" followed by two "Logon" entries. This just keeps repeating every minute. I cleared the log and rebooted... then monitored the log and the behavior continued.

Why does this happen? Is there some kind of logging that was accidentally turned on? I can't recall what I might have done, as I had to do quite a bit of troubleshooting with another problem... is there something I can check that controls logging? I tried searching the Vista forums and didn't turn up anything matching "Special Logon".

Answer:"Special Logon" repeats every minute in Security Event Log

Are you able to get a Snip of the Log?

Please see How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista For More Information

Also does the Log provide any Username?

Many Thanks,

I recently swaped out a power supply to replace a broken one in another computer. Now this computer has no power supply, but I have another spare ATX that fits, so I screwed it into the computer, powered it up, and it works. Except after like 3 mins the fans seem to die down. After another minute, the computer gives a "Computer shutdown due to thermal events" error. Does this mean I put in the wrong type of power supply? Is the fan messed up?
 

Answer:Power supply causing "Thermal event error"?

It probably means it is not sufficient power or is dying.

I receive this error message in the Windows System log regularly. Device Manager does not show any malfunctioning devices.

Apparently csvol service is part of HFS+ for Windows. This is a program that allows reading of HFS+ file systems on Windows. I did install that.

And I believe these Event ID 7000 errors are related to a service failing to start. maxView Storage Manager Agent service will not start. It is set to 'automatic start' in the Services viewer app. However, I find that it is not started, and if I attempt to start it manually, I receive a message stating it started and then stopped, "Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs." That should not be the case with this service.

I'd greatly appreciate any help with this!

Hi All,

I've had an issue with Event viewer unable to start due to "endpoint mapper database entry could not be created" Error 1899. I have done a SFC and have had some but not all issues fixed, I have a log of the result and maybe could post if needed. I've also done a system restore to a previous working config but no luck, the problem still persists. Has anyone had experience with this issue and know a fix for it?

Regards
Hiconic

Answer:cannot start event viewer "Error code 1899"

It's no wonder people slag off Microsoft for the lack of support. This issue has effectively stopped me from doing any back up on my PC as without the Event logging service or Event viewer service running the Back up cannot be set as it's dependent on these services which are hog tied by this endpoint mapper issue! Another Windows endless catch 22 loop!!

I can't believe no one has anything to offer on this issue! I've seen this issue raised on several forums but as yet no one seems to have the solution, which begs the question where are all the experts out there specializing in Windows 7? Suddenly, nothing happened!!

Hello and thanks for taking the time to look at this.

I'll try to keep this as short (yet detailed) as possible. History:
1. I bought this laptop about 3-4 yrs ago.
2. Touchpad stopped reacting to touch about a year+ ago. I use a mouse.

3. Green text here has been updated and clarified: I've received messages from my internet provider saying a toolbar update needs done and that all browser windows will be closed and I'll be prompted to restart the computer. I click the X and it says "the toolbar update cannot continue without administrator credentials. An administrator can update the software after 24 hrs has elapsed." There's never been an administrator set up on this computer that I know of so that seems like an odd message.

4. I've also noticed that for some reason the memory load slowly increases (as viewed on task manager), and the computer slows down, even if I don't do anything other than leave those browsers open. Maybe this is normal but I don't know so I thought I'd mention it.

5. Ok, a few days ago the computer froze up (like many people, this has happened before and wasn't extremely concerning). Not sure exactly why it froze but I often leave the computer on for weeks at a time while I'm working/researching numerous things. I'll usually have 1-4 internet windows open (with multiple tabs in each window) during that time. So, with the computer unresponsive I have to push/hold the pwr button to tu... Read more

My Windows 7 configuration is relatively bullet proof (ha ha, nervous laughter).

My OS and programs are on C, which I image using RDriveImage every month after Patch Tuesday.

My data is on software-mirrored D/F drives.

So as long as I don't have a catastrophic event affecting my computer, a routine "drive failure" should be recoverable, with the worst-case being I'd be out a month of updates, but with a good recent image of the OS drive.

Anyway, I was recently looking at my event viewer and I have "Disk errors" that occur whenever I run a full image of C.

Try going into your BIOS to see what it has to say about the drive. Some BIOS's can read the drive's SMART status and can run tests on it. You could also download the disk manufacturer's drive diagnostics to check it out. Or see what Seatools (from Seagate) has to say about it:

Hello everyone and thank you so much for reading and helping me.
Let me first explain that I am running Windows Vista Pro. For the past few days, my computer has been freezing up as I have been browsing the web. Ctrl+Atl+Del does nothing, I wait to see if Firefox will respond to no avail. I am forced to do a hard shut-down. When I restart, the computer works well for a few hours, even a day or so. Then the freezing repeats.
My computer is up to date with all updates from Microsoft, the Microsoft Firewall is turned on and I have Symantec Anti-Virus up to date and running. (Actually I'm pretty compulsive with updating.)
So I decided to look at my event viewer to see if I could find out what was wrong. BINGO. Every time my computer has frozen up in the past few days, an event is logged as the following:
"An anonymous session connected from xxx.xxx.xxx.xx has attempted to open an LSA policy handle on this machine. The attempt was rejected with STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED to prevent leaking security sensitive information to the anonymous caller.
The application that made this attempt needs to be fixed. Please contact the application vendor. As a temporary workaround, this security measure can be disabled by setting the \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\Lsa\TurnOffAnonymousBlock DWORD value to 1.

Answer:BSOD help needed. Problem event name "BlueScreen"

Looks to me as if it involves USB and networking - so I'd have to suspect your "Air card" device.
Please:
- download a fresh copy of the drivers from the service provider's website. Ensure that they are Win7 compatible.
- uninstall the current driver software from your system
- install the freshly downloaded copy and monitor for further problems.

There are numerous drivers dating from 2009 or earlier. Please scan the list below and update those older drivers. The links below the table will show info on where to get updates for those drivers.

You have an old copy protection program that dates from 2006 - please uninstall that. It most likely came from a program installed from a DVD that had a movie on it. If unable to locate it/uninstall it - please post back for a safe way to remove it.
It appears that you also have AVG and McAfee installed - not a good thing!!!

Please uninstall AVG, then do the following to remove McAfee (there is a place to add another antivirus in the instructions) - but I'd like you to do it this way in order to minimize potential problems.

WinXP Media Center Edition SP3 - there are numerous "warnings" in the Event Viewer in the 'System' section. Each time the warning shows up (about every 2-4 days), there will be at least 5-6 in a row, sometimes as many as 15 all in group. Here's the message (a screen shot is attached below also):




Event Viewer said:



Event Type: Warning
Event Source: Disk
Event Category: None
Event ID: 51
Date: 2/6/2011

User: N/A
Computer: OWNER-EF6521BE4
Description:
An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a
paging operation.Click to expand...

The owner of the PC is convinced the new hard drive I installed about a year ago is failing because he'd get occasional BSOD crashes, but I ran 2 different diagnostics on the drive, and both passed 100% (one was the Seagate 'Seatools' bootable diagnostic; it's a Seagate 320gb SATA drive). The system passed an extended RAM diagnostic (I knew the RAM was OK, but I ran the test just to be thorough). I'm researching the message right now, but haven't found much.... any thoughts?

Thanks!

(I've been using the PC for about 6 hours now w/o any problems, but then again, the warnings don't necessarily show up every day; sometimes there's 4-5 days with no warnings)
 

Answer:Numerous "warnings" in Event Viewer (WinXP)

Upon looking at the Event Viewer messages a bit closer, I found that there's a few of these identical warnings that refer to "\Device\Harddisk1\D" but the vast majority refer to HD0\D. There is only one hard drive in the PC.....
:confused

EDIT - a bit more digging, and I discovered that the "iPod Service has entered the running state" occurs about 40sec before a string of the warnings starts; the iPod service is not listed right before the warnings every time, but it is on all but 2 out of a total of 12 or 13 'runs' of the paging warnings.... a connection between the iPod and the paging problems?

how do I do this?
for attempted troubleshooting a horribly slow black-screen boot situation I imported a worthless "custom view" in Event Logging. How do I undo that?
countless MS articles on how to create and "work with" but none clearly say how to get rid of it.

and for that matter: how do I get rid of auto-created custom views that past programs insinuated into my Logs without telling me! ??

Hello, I guess this isn't a huge issue since its more of an annoyance than anything. I uninstalled Internet Explorer and configured my Indexing Options so it wouldn't include the location used for IE history (I thought?). But this error pops up from time to time in the Event Viewer. I have searched so many places for clues but came up with nothing so I turned here. Not sure of the easiest format to display the errors and settings so here is a compiled image of the Event Viewer and Indexing Options.

http://i50.tinypic.com/w7kdg5.jpg

Correct me if I'm wrong but I understand that the Gatherer can't find the file/location because it doesn't exist?

I tried searching the internet for "S-1-5-21-3684526760-1838744142-3877755193-1001" but no results came up. But after searching my computer I found a "S-1-5-21-3684526760-1838744142-3877755193-1001_UserData.bin" file in the C:\Windows\System32\wdi\{86432a0b-3c7d-4ddf-a89c-172faa90485d} directory. Not sure what this means although I'm not going to try deleting it.

Is this something that just happens if you uninstall Internet Explorer or could it have been caused when I used CCleaner and it was still set to remove IE data even though it was uninstalled.

Again, this isn't a critical thing so if no solution can be found no worries. Just thought I'd ask, thanks!

Answer:Event Viewer Search Error "iehistory://"

Hello !!

Since Internet Explorer's rendering engine is also used throughout Windows and with third-party applications as an embeddable component, it won't completely uninstall—only the executable is actually removed. So even if you move Internet Explorer the traces would be still there.

Hope this helps,
Captain

Hi All,

I am currently planning to write a script that will monitor the security event log for certain events like the creation of user accounts, changes to policies, etc. The testing is done on a Windows 2000 server. The local policies have success/failure audit on all items available.

So what I started to do was to start testing what security events get generated when I perform different actions like changing policies and creating and modifying user accounts.

There appears to be some issue with the generation of Success event for some of the User Rights Assignment. According to Microsoft it is supposed to generate an event with ID 608. Something similar to

Event ID: 608 (0x0260)
Type: Success Audit
Description: User Right Assigned
User Right: %1
Assigned To: %2
Assigned By User Name: %3
Domain: %4
Logon ID: %5

The following rights that I tested were not able to generate this event when I added a user to this right. It was able to generate the event 609 (User Right Removed) with no problems.

The following are the rights that have this issue. These are the ones that I want to monitor specifically.

- Access this computer from the network
- Deny access to this computer from the network
- Deny logon locally
- Log on locally

I read some article about (NT 4 that says that these events are not generated, but nothing pertaining to Windows 2000 )

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/163905/en-us

So I think that this may be done by design, but it seems strange that it will gen... Read more

should i be worried ? and how can i solve the problems ?

2- i just changed my theme ... and the computer makes sound when i enter or exit a folder ... basically when i do anything ... how to mute the theme's sound ?

thanks : )

Answer:My result in the " event viewer " ... and theme problem

I can't help you with #1 but I'm sure someone here can certainly do so.

As to #2, go to your "personalize" options by right clicking on the desktop, select "Personalize" then select "Sounds" at the bottom of the Personalization Options window.
That will bring up the dialog pictured below. Your scheme (in the red box) will be different than mine. Just go to the blue box and change your sounds to your heart's content.

Note: the red and blue boxes are only for clarification - you will not see them.

Hi,
This issue could be caused if Defragment take operation on SSD. And as we know SSD cannot be defragged.

To check if your SSD has been defragmented, please run following powershell command:

Get-EventLog -LogName Application -Source "microsoft-windows-defrag" | sort timegenerated -desc | fl timegenerated, message
Judging by the drive letter, you can easily see if your SSD drive gets defragmented. The SSD volume below has been correctly re-trimmed first, but then erroneously defragged.
You can try following steps to avoid defragmentation of your SSD:
Exclude SSD from automatic maintenance
Open the disk optimizer (dfrgui):

      
Press "Change Settings".      
Press "Choose" and remove checkboxes from SSD volumes.
In addition, I will document it and confirm with product team if it is by design.
Keep post.Kate Li

Hello...
I have a Dell Optiplex GS270 that is giving me a "shutdown due to a thermal event" error and then will not boot before shutting down. The first thing I tried was a thorough cleaning with canned air and a damp sponge (where applicable).
No luck... just a repeat of above.
Next I checked the posts here and tried
"Start the system.
Press 'F2' to enter System Setup.
Under the Maintenance heading, highlight 'System Event Log' and press the 'Enter' key.
Highlight 'Clear System Event Log' and press the 'Enter' key.
Press the 'Esc' key twice to restart."
Again... a repeat of problem.

Answer:Dell PC with "Thermal Event" problems... PLEASE help!

By all means remove the heatsink and fan, clean them and re-attach with a little fresh thermal compound. Thernal paste can dry out and crack. It is then worse than none at all.

Answer:Win 8 Event Viewer - You finding yours to be "busier"?

Something is opening registry handles to your user's registry or files in your profile and isn't letting go. It's doing so as part of a svchost, which means it's probably a task running in task scheduler. Have you installed any software that would have added any scheduled tasks?

I'm running WinNT 4.0 Server (SP5).
I noticed in the Event Viewer the message "The device \Device\Harddisk1\Partition1 has a bad block". The Event ID is 7 and the source is Disk.
I understand that part of the hard drive may be unuseable (I couldn't find much documentation on this error), although the server seems to be functioning fine (so far...).
What should I do, troubleshooting wise, as a result of this error? Also, any specific information on Bad Block errors would be greatly appreciated!

Well, for the NT part, you should really be in the NT forum.

Since you have a hardware question though, lets answer that first.

What brand hard drive is it? Most companies have utilities that you can run on the drive to test it.

Hello all,
First, is it just me or is the Dell website a little difficult to navigate and sort of annoying? Having said that, I'm not here to trash Dell. I have been, overall, very happy with my Inspiron 3650; however, I have been plagued with some chronic Event Viewer warnings and errors. (As a side note- if there is a particular "group" or "forum" or whatever that discusses Event Viewer messages I would be grateful for that link). While most errors are Windows related, I do get one error which occurs every other day, "Event 0, Dell System Detect"--"The character '/' cannot be included in a name". See below for details.  While it doesn't seem to be causing any immediate problems (other than annoying me), I am concerned that it is affecting my ability to receive updates from Dell. 
Any thoughts would be appreciated! If this is the wrong forum to post this, please advise as well.

With a clean install of Windows 8 I noticed a few strange issues. One being an empty folder appearing on the desktop for no reason, could delete it but then it would later come back. Right click on it and it has no options other than cut or delete.

Been with Win 8 for just over a day now, after severe grief with two installs going bad. (Upgrade doesn't work at all, 2nd I should have run Windows update before installing newer nvidia drivers).... I am left with an OS in reasonable working order.

Sometimes apps are not launching when I click on them and event viewer is being hammered.

There are lots of mentions or my Cyborg RAT 7 drivers in event viewer (Saitek errors).

What are people doing with regards to intel chipset drivers, the intel engine management drivers etc? Are you letting Windows 8 obtain them or are you getting them from Intel direct?

But look at this....

taskhostex (1768) An attempt to open the file "C:\Users\Damien\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\W ebCache\WebCacheV01.dat" for read only access failed with system error 32 (0x00000020): "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. ". The open file operation will fail with error -1032 (0xfffffbf8).

Or how about some of this....

This could also apply to XP and Vista, as well as Windows 7.
See thumbnail for 1 day's Statistics about Event Viewer from my W7 laptop.

To check your Event Viewer stats, in W7 go to:
? Click on the "Orb",
? In the Search box, type in eventvwr and press Enter.
? Double click on Windows Logs, to see itemised stats.
? Double click on each of the itemised stats to see individual occurences.

There will probably be 1000's of events listed in "Security", for example.

Optionally, you may scroll down through the lists of events in each heading to check out problems the Event Viewer may have found. This may help you in Troubleshooting problems.

You have the option of "Save and clear a log", or clearing the log without saving. (see additional thumbnail)

After you become confident in how your PC is running, you may simply clear the log, without saving the log.

Every so often it is worthwhile to review all listed events in each category, then clear them, just to confirm your PC is running OK.

It will also clear some Hard drive space by running Event Viewer regularly and clearing events listed.

Maybe you should "thumbnail" your stats in a reply here, for others to see how the events accumulate.
