No extra software needed. In event viewer right click the item you want to copy and paste. Next choose properties. A dialog box will appear with all the pertinent information regrading the listed event. In the upper right corner of the dialog box are an up and down arrow to scroll through more events. Also an icon with two 'sheets of paper' the sheets of paper icon captures the information to your clip board. Click the sheets of paper icon and copy the information, then right click when you have your mouse where you want it pasted.
