Thank you.

I'm a huge fan of NirSoft's (free!) utilities, which I've been using for many years:
http://www.nirsoft.net/

One of them is MyEventViewer:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/my_event_viewer.html

Scroll to the bottom of the page at the above URL for the download links. Note that there are both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. It is a no-install/stand-alone executable...just unzip the file and run the EXE...very light and easy to install...in fact, no install!

MyEventViewer allows you to view the events of another machine on your network, but you must have full admin access to the remote computer. To do this, use the "/remote" command line option and specify the name or address of the remote computer. For example:

MyEventViewer.exe /remote \\SmithComputer
MyEventViewer.exe /remote \\192.168.0.150

This blog entry explains how to get get full admin access to the remote computer:

I use EventSentry Light.

Very simple to use, you can configure it to send alerts on the type of events you want.
And it's free.

HTH,
