Hello,

anybody know of a good (preferably free) application for processing Windows Event Viewer data?
Something that provides the ability to filter by string and generate reports would be great.

Thanks!

hello alpha-lemming
windows event viewer does have filtering and it is already in the system.

as far as I can see, the builtin log viewer does not allow filtering by text in in the log message, nor does it allow report generation as in: "For this period of time application X reported error Y N times"..
