any recommendations on eventid.net

Based on their description this sounds like a great tool by automating and fast review system error and time saving searching the internet for the definitions of event id

any recommendation?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

They are a website that appears regularly when I search for the cause of events and I have looked at their pages for over ten years now; but, have not felt the need to pay for their answers.

Several years back, I had a coworker with a paid subscription to the site. The additional information that was available to paying subscribers was useful (mostly functional links to other sites with further information on the event you're looking at, if I recall), but it wasn't anything that I couldn't live without.

This isn't directly related to your question, but it really bugs me that Microsoft doesn't have a single site with descriptions of every event ID. Most of them can be found somewhere on TechNet, but there are gaps. Trying to look up an event and finding no official documentation of it at all is infuriating.

Davis; 1- some enswers thy only displayed with a paid subscription, are you saying that most information is displayed without subscription? 2- with paid thy provide daly report on errors so you can have a quick look on what is going on before it causes trouble, don't you think this is something worth $70, the question is also if their application is written good not to drag the server performance.

DrDave; I fully agree with your complaint on microsoft, I find TechNet more confusing than helpful. so if there is a site which would save time searching -time is money-

Abraham,  I have found that eventid.net will often point me in the right direction; but, have also been able to find the rest of where it pointed me to in just a few more minutes of searching.....
You're very much on the right track though as I have found that very few "techies" even know to go check the event logs for what is causing the problem!
