Are you bumping into a problem with your Windows PC but not sure what's causing it? Windows Event Viewer might be able to help. This tool records all events that occur on your PC, whether they're benign or nasty.
But Event Viewer isn't the most user-friendly feature in Windows. So how do you decipher the findings in Event Viewer to see if they can help you resolve an actual problem? Read on.
It looks confusing and complicated, but once you get past the surface appearance, you'll find details that may help resolve a technical issue.
In the left pane, Event Viewer uses folders to organize the different events collected. The Windows Logs record events that apply to your entire Windows system. The Applications and Services Logs record events that apply to just a single application or service. Double-click on the setting for Windows Logs. You'll see subfolders that divide the various events by category: Application, Security, Setup, and System. Click on one of the subfolders, such as System, and scroll down to view the different events.
As you scroll down, you'll notice that events are typically tagged with one of three levels: Information; Warning, or Error. Information is a completely harmless level, serving just to record natural events that occur in Windows. Warning is usually no cause for any real concern; it's just a sign that something unexpected happened or failed to happen. Error is obviously the most significant of the three levels, indicating a problem that may or may not be affecting Windows or an application.
You may also see some events marked as Critical or Verbose, but those are rare. However, a Critical event would be the most serious type and potentially indicative of a problem that needs to be addressed.Read More...
