Run script automatically after Event ID is logged in Event Viewer

Wanting to have an auto script that runs when a specific error occurs Application Log.

The Event ID basically states that the backup device (NAS) is not functioning correctly.

I want it to run an angry ip script which does a scan of ip address and outputs into a TXT file.

So is there someway to setup a EventID trigger that runs another script?

And if so how would one do this?

We use WinXP, Win7, Server 2003 & Server 2008 - not sure if there is a one-size fits all solution.

That applies to XP only unfortunately. Tried on my Win7 machine and didnt play the game.

Having a look for some sites for Win7.
