I need a good way to keep a running log of Window's XP boot history
Posted on 2009-05-13
We are running XP Professional on about 475 workstations. Different models of workstation are freezing up during the "Loading Personal Settings" phase of the system boot. Maybe 15 percent have reported this problem about once a week, with new machines reporting the problem every few days. The only way that we can remedy the problem is to reboot the machine. The problem usually will not return for a few days or even weeks--not a high priority problem, but something we need to remedy.
I am looking for a good way to log all boot actions, and maybe track down what is causing this problem. Does Microsoft provide a way to keep an extensive boot history? If not, can you recommend a product that might work well for me?
