Windows Server 2008 Event Viewer Question

Hello. I would like to know that if on Windows Server 2008 I manually end a process in the task manager, would this show in the Event Viewer, and if so, where in the event viewer would this show? Also, if a process ends by itself, then will this show in the event viewer, and once again, where in the event viewer would this show?

Many Thanks,

It won't show in the Event Viewer, unless it's a service and the service was written to write to the event log when starting up or shutting down.  But most processes don't write an event when they start up or shut down.  An example of this is MS Word.  It doesn't write an event log when it starts up and shuts down.

Thank you KaptainKenbo for your quick response - can you further confirm, based on your response, that if a service were to stop/start, this information would show in the "System" windows log?

Thanks,

Yes, they will appear in the System windows log, however, I have seen services that write to the Application log as well - not a good practice.
