View Full Version : Windows event viewer

This might sound like an odd question, but does the windows event viewer upon rebooting looks at the complete log since the last reboot, or does it only look at the events during the restart of the computer?

On a reboot I keep getting a popup message that informs me a service failed during startup and to check the event log for the failed service. All I see is an exception error that happened days ago.

This is a WHS machine, so it very rarely is rebooted and runs 24/7.
