If your computer is running normal there is little concern. If you are having problems the Event Viewer can be a valuable asset.

Hello! I prefer the Reliability Monitor. It's kind a like event viewer but easier for me to use!

Let me know what you think!!

http://www.howtogeek.com/166911/reliability-monitor-is-the-best-windows-troubleshooting-tool-you-arent-using/

It is a great tool to use if your having BSOD. I don't know why BC forum isn't using it more. I guess they don't think it's any good or they just don't want to change. :notme: Here's another link by Micro$$oft  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc749583%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

 

When it comes to hidden gems in Windows, nothing beats the Reliability monitor tool, hidden behind a link inside of another tool that you don’t use either. Why Microsoft doesn’t shine more light on this really useful troubleshooting tool, we’ll never know.

 

Reliability Monitor tracks the history of your computer — any time an application crashes, hangs, or Windows gives you a blue screen of death. It also tracks other important events, like when software is installed, or Windows Updates loads a new patch.

 

It’s an extremely useful tool. And yes, it’s in Windows 7 and 8… and even 8.1. It might be in Vista, but who uses that anymore?

Most of the time, it appears so, but I occasionally have IE(10) issues where IE stops.  That lowers my reliability graph line when those occur.  Then the trend line goes back to 10 .

 

I haven't looked into those IE issues since they're infrequently intermittent and don't bother me much.  I close the browser and relaunch and all's well.

 

I think my IE issue is related to when I'm streaming a news broadcast and have had the browser open for a long time.  Once I close and reopen, it works well.

Hello! I have received those IE issues also. I down loaded the latest version, and I haven't see a issue lately, but I seldom use IE.

It makes me mad when IE messes up my perfect 10! Have you ever reset IE??

Thanks for the link.  I bookmarked it and will try that soon.

 

I'm running IE10 on the Desktop PC so that may have something to do with the intermittent issues.  I upgraded to IE11 a few weeks ago on the Laptop (Win 7 x64) and am testing it out for a while before installing on the Desktop PC.

 

I like to use the Laptop as a "tester" PC when upgrading IE, or my AV, things like that, before I do the same on the Desktop PC since my Desktop PC is my main PC.

 

IE addiction :lol:  I probably should be using Firefox, Chrome, etc.  I got hooked on some specific IE default shortcut keys that aren't defined the same in Firefox (the last time I tried Firefox was not recently).  Since I don't use the mouse much, certain IE shortcut keys are important to me.

I check the reliability monitor all the time, just to see how my PC is performing. I believe it's a great tool, but it doesn't have all the answers. It can however keep you informed about what's going on with your machine. There are some things there that you just ignore; just like the event viewer. I doubt if Micro$$oft ever gets it perfect. If they ever do, then we won't need sites like BC forum. Then I'll be bored, with nothing to do. :hysterical:

PS The Adobe Reader issue is now solved. It has updated successfully, and I'm a happy camper!!
