Hello- I took a look at Event Viewer today on my XP Pro x86 SP3 machine and I had just a bunch of Errors and Warnings in there. At a glance, they just started happening a few hours ago. I made no changes to the System and I can't find any malware. I tried to run the Properties> MS Support link and that was about useless.
Is there anyone out there that would be willing to work me through this?... I'm afraid I don't have the time for Google research and chasing these things down right now. The machine appears to be functioning fine.
Thanks a lot!

Is your system running okay? If so, stay out of event viewer.

LOL...I have to agree with Allan, the only time I ever look in Event Viewer is when I have noticed something wrong with system functionality.

I consider warnings of no consequence at all, while Event Viewer reports all sorts of admin things with Windows as "errors." If the system is working properly, I see no need to peek at EV.
