Reliability History - journal of changes?
I have been perusing the forums for a little while so thanks to all those who have provided the hints and tips that have enabled me to transition from my old XP system. Something that was not without a little pain, however, as I was quite happy with XP although not with the outdated hardware that it ran on. Overall I am quite happy with Windows 7 and it seems just as stable as I found XP to be.
I am quite amenable to a little tinkering and tuning, easier on XP I have to admit but that might just be the learning curve, so rarely a week passes without some change to my system. I rely on Macrium Reflect Free edition for images (System Restore never used even on XP) and SyncBack for general backups of data.
Because I make so many changes I tend to image my system so that it relects the changes and lately I have taken to recording these changes to a text file so that I can understand if and when problems occur as to their origins. I find the Reliability History quite useful as it relects software installs, updates and problems but it would be nice to add notes so that a full history of the system could be seen at a glance - any changes made to the system for example. The Event Viewer - Windows.application experience.program inventory seems to give a fuller history of software installs/uninstalls and various logs can give information on problems. Am I missing something and there is perhaps some way of combining all these elements other than manually?

Since there have been no comments and from my own research it seems not an easy task to achieve - adding comments to the Reliability and Problem History. It seems to gather data from a number of event sources but I certainly do not have the expertise to find a way of doing this.
Oh well, back to the manual approach.
