You need to look for source = Wininit Event ID = 1001

Thanks for the link. I'm having a little trouble with this part of the directions:

7. Go back to the top of the log file list in the middle pane of Event Viewer, then copy and paste Wininit into the line, and click on Find Next. (see screenshot below step 5)
NOTE: You can continue to click on Find Next to search for other older application logs (if available) for Check Disk (chkdsk) to see them as well.

If I understand it correctly, after I've found all Chkdsk events, going back to the "Find" box on the right and entering Wininit and asking it to Find again should further narrow events down to just the times Chkdsk has run on startup. When I do that the results are exactly the same as when I searched for Chkdsk (9000+ instances). Obviously that isn't the actual number of times Chkdsk has run on startup.

Sorry if the answer to this is really obvious. I'm not very computer savvy. But you probably already figured that out.

Follow the tutorial carefully, start over. There should not be a problem with the tutorials. If you carefully follow instructions and continue to have problems, we will investigate further.

The easiest way is to create a new custom view (action->Create custom view). In the wizard select

1. Event Logs. Check Windows Logs from the dropdown
2. In the event sources dropdown check wininit.
3. Press Ok and on the next page give it a name.

This will give you a list of all chkdsk records during boot

richc46 you were right. i was using the "find" feature on the right side rather than right clicking applications on the left. unfortunately though when i try it the way the tutorial suggests my "find" option is greyed out. i'm running eventviewer as administrator... i'm attaching a screenshot.

Yeah I wouldn't exactly say I found the answer. I just changed the problem.

You need to click on Application with the left mouse button first to select it, then you can right click and select Find. At least that's how it worked for me.
