I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was running 3DMark06 and got a BSOD code 124. After that every time I boot Event Viewer logs Error Codes ID 3012 and 3011. Attached are screenshots of both.

I googled this and found two different threads where someone suggested to rebuild the performance counters. Both responses were basically the same, below is one. Neither of the OP's came back and said if this worked for them.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Re: LoadPerf 3011, 3012
Hi-
I had the same problem with LoadPerf and here is what I found out:
All performance counter names and explain text are maintained in string tables managed by the performance counter subsystem (Perflib).

The current contents of the performance counter string tables are corrupted and cannot be displayed. To correct the problem, rebuild the string tables.

User Action
To rebuild the string tables, on the computer that displayed the message, at the command prompt, type Lodctr /r
The contents of the string tables are automatically rebuilt.

I hope this helps
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Since this was from 2008 (XP?) and the other response was for Vista I wanted to see if the guru's at SevenForums thought that this was okay before I did this.

Here are the screenshoots of my two errors.

A:After BSOD Event Viewer Logs Event ID 3012 and 3011 every time I boot

After too many unexplained problems, I decided to reinstall Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and migrate off of SBS 2011 Standard. In addition to the primary workstation that can't read any event logs, I built five Server 2012 R2 servers (Hyper-V host, Active Directory
VM, Exchange 2013 VM, SQL Server 2014 VM, and WSUS VM).

I was diagnosing why my workstation's Outlook cannot reach the local Exchange Server.   I tried to look at the event logs, and found the
Event Viewer cannot open the event log or custom view.  Verify that Event Log service is running (it is) or the query is too long (whatever that indicates).  The request is not supported (50)
Looking at the directory of the event logs folder.  It appears that most logs are empty, which is understandable since it's a rebuilt installation.  I found a small number of Applications and Services Logs and it appears nothing was logged since
six days ago on 4/4/2016.   On support forums, I found many have this exact problem on Win 7, Win 8, and Win 10.  Of the solutions posted none of them would even execute on my Win 8.1 Pro x64 machine.  I tried clearing the event logs (WEVTUTIL
CL logfilename) and am told Failed to clear log .... The request is not supported. 
It's very difficult to diagnose why Outlook 2013 cannot reach Exchange 2013, even if Outlook is installed on the Exchange server machine (just as a test).  The web-based Outlook owa, ecp, ... all work fine. ... Read more

If you are talking about Windows Logs, actually there is a way. When you open Event Viewer, you will see a 'Custom Views' group in the left sidebar. By right clicking on it you get a menu from which you can select 'Create Custom View'. That opens a new window, where you have to check the first radio button that says "by log" (it is checked by default but make sure), and on its right side there is a dropdown menu from which you can pick logs that you want. After clicking OK and naming your custom view, you will have a list of all the events from all the logs you selected.

You can list the contents of an event log, sort by source, group by message type and more. To get the a whole log use the following command: get-eventlog [log name] get-eventlog Application

If you wish to sort the records by source use this command: get-eventlog Application | sort Source You can also group the records by Source, it can take a while depending on the number of records, but it is handy! Just run:
get-eventlog Application | group Message

Now event logs can get quite large and hold thousands and thousands of records. You can use the -Newest ### switch to retrieve a set number of the latest events recorded And, of course, these can all be combined to get exactly what you are looking for.
get-eventlog Application -newest 100 | sort source

Hello,
I am doing proof of concept testing and I am running into a lot of scenarios where EMET blocks an exploit attempts but does not generate a log or notification. For example CVE-2015-5119. I can compromise a vulnerable test machine no problem. When I apply
EMET to IE the exploit is stopped (application crashes) but I get no event. I have been unable to generate an EMET event for IE (flash plugin) or Java so far this way. The only way that I get an EMET notification is for when I have it protecting another application
like notepad or audioconverter. I have also tried CVE-2012-4969 and CVE-2011-3544 which is a java exploit and EMET mitigates it but not message or Event log. The vulnerable system running EMET is Windows 7 SP1 with IE 8. I have tried both EMET 5.2 and

Hi,

We are reading the event log information in our application from using query in windows management service and Java script. The required event log is based on the current system time that we send through the query to fetch the details. We face a problem while fetching a event log of Windows xp and Windows-7 as the actual time the error message logs differs from the system time. Also the time difference is not same in all the machines of same configuration.

Example : Conider an error is logged in windows event log at 05.00 AM but the time logged as 02.00 AM (which can also 07.00 AM or any difference of time) in the event log. Now I was unable to decide the exact time of an error log.

We made a workaround in Windows-7 by fetching it using Record ID which is increasing for every event log but the same does not work in Windows-XP as the record id is not increasing and does not look to have a standard format.

Kindly provide us some solution to fetch the error log information of the particular time.

Thanks,
Deva Veluchamy.

Event Viewer in pre-Vista platforms suffers from several limitations that make it underperform as a troubleshooting tool. These limitations include a lack of support for centralized logging, inability to query across multiple logs, limited event filtering capability, and a general lack of "software intelligence" in terms of helping you understand how different events correlate with possible problems and how they can be resolved.

Windows Vista's enhanced version of Event Viewer is a big improvement in many of these areas, and while it's still not perfect (especially in the area of software intelligence) it's still a good step forward over the previous version of the tool. Let's walk through using some of these new features so you can learn how to use their capabilities for troubleshooting purposes.

I know of Event Manager from GFI, but they are too expensive - their WorkStation-only product costs less, but it doesn't handle systog data, only their server product does, and the server edition costs $220 for 9 nodes. I only want something for home use, with 4 nodes. Any ideas?

We are getting the following error continuously in our NT 4.0 server event log: Most of the computers are logging in to the domain okay. (I say most because one or two have been having problems, I don't know if they are related.)

My understanding is that another tech had recently (last eight months or so) reinstalled the operating system on the server, and it looks like he named the domain controller the same as it was. He didn't make any changes to the clients because they were logging in after the format.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I periodically get lockups on my Windows 7 laptop.

Just prior to the lockup events, the System Event Log under the System tab reports several Information messages, roughly around 20 and about one or more every second.

The source is Application Popup and the Event ID is 26. The description is: "Application popup: Windows - Application Error: The instruction at 0x77632239 referenced memory at 0x000000014. The memory could not be written."

No popup actually was shown on my screen, though. Within 20 minutes of these events being logged, the system inevitably locks up. Does anyone know what the reason might be?

(PS, when the system does come back, I see an event that notes that the previous system shutdown was unexpected. The time it gives for the shutdown seems to be the time when it locked up. (I can see that the clock was frozen at that time.))

Which event logs can one check to identify hardware errors or general hardware health for the disk (SSD), battery, or memory? Are there additional health checks that can be collected through PowerShell/WMI? I know Win32_battery has for example an attribute
for ExpectedBatteryLife although  I don't see it populated. Also the below blog shows how to query disk health through WMI.

OK so for the last week or so my pc has been cshutting off at random times and then on reboot indicating that there had been a thermal event. The fan on the CPU is working and the computer often shutdown immediately following start up (before there would be any chance for it to get too hot) I have run Advanced Systemcare free SInc I got it along with AVG Free. When I started noticing problems I also downloaded Ad-Aware and MalWareBytes. All systems run clean, but performance still sucks. Today I get the Thermal event Shutdown message again and when I look at thr event log it shows that my memeory was reduced on Oct 14th. I decide to try to go back to a restore point, and coincedientally the last restore point is Oct 14th. I run system restore, and the restore application comes back and tells me that it can't restore the computer to that day.

There is too much coincidence to make me think that nothing is happening, but I'm not PC savvy enough to figure out on my own. PLease help. Hi Jack this logs below

I have a computer that just keeps rebooting itself randomly. I am not sure why though. The fans seem to be Ok so it isn't over-heating. Below are the Event IDs listed in the Event Viewer. Let me know your thoughts on how to fix this or if these errors have anything to do with the reboots.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Application Error
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1000
Description: Faulting application soffice.exe, version 6.0.7663.500, faulting module kernel32.dll, version 5.1.2600.3119, fault address 0x00012a5b


Event Type: Error
Event Source: System Error
Event Category: (102)
Event ID: 1003
Description: Error code 1000008e, parameter1 c000001d, parameter2 ecd3bcd8, parameter3 80548dc4, parameter4 00000000


Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7000
Description: The LogMeIn Kernel Information Provider service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified.

A:Random Reboot: Event Viewer Logs

What is soffice? Is it Star Office? If it is I would try un-installing and re-installing to see if it solves the problem?

In order to figure out why you are getting random reboots, you need to make a settings change to your computer. Go to:

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Setup and Recovery 'Settings'

UN check 'Automatically Restart'. Click OK.

Reboot your computer. Now when Windows detects a problem it will not automatically reboot, but rather give you a blue screen.

Blue screens are often called 'Blue Screens of Death' (or BSOD) by users, and 'Stop Messages' by Microsoft. We need to know the exact message you see when you get the blue screen. We especially are looking for a set of letters and numbers about half way down the page that take this format:

0x0000008e

This is usually followed by a set of 4 similar numbers in parenthesis. For now we just need the first set of letter and numbers (before the numbers in the parenthesis).
