Managing the Windows Event Log

  • Derek Schauland
  • Donald Jacobs


Windows is a complex application, to say the least. Things happen that the user is aware of—for example, starting Microsoft Word—and things happen that the user may not be aware of, such as a privilege audit of a security access to a file on the C drive. In the latter case, the person sitting at the computer sees the folder open or an error about access being denied. The event log contains a record of these events to keep administrators informed about what actions are being taken on a computer.
