The Event Viewer Console

1. Open the Event Viewer Console through one of the following methods:
- From the RUN Command, type eventvwr.msc and press enter.
- Click the Start Globe, select All programs, Administrative Tools, and then select Event Viewer;

- NOTE: In some Windows 7 releases you can right click on 'Computer' and select 'Manage', you will then need to filter select the event viewer in from the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) window that appears.
2. Expand Windows Logs and click on System, to see your System Events.

Hello Tim,

While editing your tutorial, click on where you want the image to go in the post, then click on the paperclip icon to attach the image at that location. I attached the first one for you as an example to help.

Thanks Brink! Master of tutorial writing.

I thought that I did that, but obviously not. I never usually have a problem with pics.
Oh well Time to fix it...

Hi Shawn,

I just ripped the coding and added an extra number to the picture ID, but thanks to your link and the first example that you did, from those I could see how it's done.

You know, if it wasn't for you constantly churning out tutorials I would never have tried to make on myself.

Cheers mate
