Admin tool event viewer


The Voices Talk to Me
With the recent/current death of my mobo I was wondering if there was a way to get more use out of the event viewer. (see screenshot) The event viewer is one of the first things I check when my computer starts having a problem, but it is kind of a pain to go and check on a regular basis and 99% of the info in it I don't really need to know. But errors and warnings are good thing to keep on top of.

Is there a way that you can set the event viewer to display a pop-up when something citical happens afer a certain number of identical events. Like in the screenshot, you can see that my mobo IDE controler was failing left, right, and sideways, well after that event happens say 3 or more times in a 24hr period I would really like to know.

Any way I can set that up simply?


I'd suggest doing a Google search for "event log monitoring xp" (without the quotes).
I came across several search results, but most of them seem to be enterprise management tools that cost a fortune. You might have some luck finding something cheap/free though.

GL with this and post back what you find!

I have BSOD symdrome on my NEO2 / AMD64 so it could be a handy thing for me to know.... reps to you if you find something!

There's an app called "Eventsentry lite" it's freeware. I haven't used it but had some friends tell me about it back in the summer (they liked it) so this may be what you want.
