Software Alternative to Event Viewer

  Snrub 11:02 01 Sep 2011

I used Event Viewer in the past in XP and was fairly good as a diagnostic tool to track and solve malfunctions. With W/7 64 bit Event Viewer is too complex throwing up many faults which are suspect with on-line solutions it can't usually find an answer to. My question is does anyone know of software which diagnoses malfunctions in the same manor as Event Viewer did but better?

I should have added suitable for W/7 64bit.

Ignore that. It is only for Vista.Funny that their older versions included W/7.

Looks like your one is for XP so not sure if it will work on Snrub's version of W/7 64 bit.

My version was similar but only for Vista.

Thanks for replies, I think there must be a gap in the software market for a W/7 64 bit application. As a matter of interest do others find Event Viewer complicated in W/7 or is it just me not persevering enough?

I certainly only use it on my XP machine but it does claim that :

"Supported OS: Windows NT, 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, 7"

see panel on LHS of page.

Yes sorry cocteau48 I was going with what was underneath it.


Never noticed the bit on the left.
