Troubleshooters can refer to the Event Viewer to review
messages from events
that have occurred on a computer. This is an important feature for
troubleshooters to determine the historical events for the computer in question. The Application, Security, and
System logs are
always present and additional logs such as the DNS Server log are only present
when the supporting service is installed. Normal application programs can
be programmed to write directly to
the Application log. The Security log is used by the audit system.
Each log file can be configured for size and overwrite
Investigate the log size options by selecting a
log file and get its properties.
