Lost Event Viewer

Hi all, it seems I've lost Event Viewer, its not in System Tools, and I cannot find it if I search for Files or Folders.

In Services Event log is set to Start and automatic.

Using WinXP SP2.

Many thanks Mike

Go to run and type

SFC /SCANNOW note space before /

Look for *.msc files, or start menu/run, type eventvwr.msc

Hi all, ran SFC /SCANNOW and nothing was found.

I used eventvwr.msc to get into eventviewer and found a few warnings MRxSmb. event ID 8004

So I'll try and look this up.

Am I right in thinking that Evetviewer used to be in SystemTools? If so, how can I get it or a link to eventviewer back there?

Many thanks for your help,

Hi Marg7, thank you for that, I've copied the icon into a folder on my desktop. I did try to add the shortcut to System tools but have not been able to do so.

Thanks for your help,
