My co-worker and I have gotten into the habit of checking the Event Logs on the two servers in the office (WS2008 and WS2003) on a weekly basis. Is there a website that provides detailed information and relative risk factors associate with the myriad of events? If I need additional information on a Windows service or startup item for example, I go to bleepingcomputer.com or blackviper.com. I'm looking for an equivalent site for Windows events.

jdana--There may be such a site, but I would think it more efficient to Google or Bing with the specific errors disclosed by an Event Log.

This site has some of what you are looking for.  Note link to Part 2 at bottom.

Searching for the event ID's and topic heading would usually return a microsoft related link with the exact fix.

I wouldn't waste time reading up on blogs or other sites, since lots of them just copy and paste from the Microsoft sites.
