This chapter on the Event Viewer opens by contrasting this tool to the monitoring tools presented in previous chapters. While walking through the updated default view, you will learn what this utility offers that the others don't. You will see the most commonly referenced event logs in Windows and a preview of how a log entry can point you to solutions.
