Love the newsletter! Is there a site that explains what the events listed in event viewer are? I know there is a process dictionary and I’ve used it, but I can’t find one for events. I see error messages in the even viewer, but I’d like to know what they mean.
Glad you love us Sheila! I can’t suggest one place to look up the events from event viewer, the events can often be complicated and probably only decipherable to IT professionals. The good news is that 99.999% of the errors in the event viewer are nothing to worry about unless you are having a problem with your computer.
I’ve mentioned the popular phone scam that tricks people into checking their event viewer and convincing them that the errors in it need some type of expensive attention. If you are having a problem with your computer and you notice a particular event in conjunction with the times that issues happens, I’d suggest just copying that event into Google or Bing to see if any known issues comes up in association with it.
Otherwise, I wouldn’t worry about Event Viewer.
