View Full Version : Event Viewer, Windows 2000

12-16-2007, 08:38 PM
Hello everyone, Im brand new to this forum and hope that I can find small lil tidbits of help I need here. I am also somewhat new to the Tech lifestyle. Ive become very proficient with newer OSs such as Vista, OSX, XP, and a couple others from my generation of computing. However i cant find how to access the event log in Windows 2000. Yes, I know, dumb problem to have and Im sure im gonna smack myself when I find out how. But ive just forgotten how to access it since I havent used 2000 in like 6 years. If someone could tell me how to get to the OS event log I would be greatful.

I have never used Win 2000 myself. I found this on the web, see if it works:

'To start Event Viewer in Windows 2000, click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.'
