As a rule, the module "O&O EventViewer" is included in the OOEMC. You can use this module unlimited times and assign it to unlimited computers. The O&O Event Viewer retrieves events from the Windows Event Viewer and logs hardware and software errors in a report. In the Job Assistant, you can define search criteria so that the collection of Windows events from the target computer occurs in accordance with established rules.
Events that were recorded by applications or programs may, for example, be file errors, valid and invalid logon attempts and events for use of resources such as creating, opening, or deleting files. At system startup, the failed loading of a device driver or other system component is also recorded.
More information on the Windows EventViewer will be provided by the Windows Help.

Include events of the type "Warning": Events labeled in the Windows EventView as "Warning" will also be downloaded and displayed in the report, if you enable this function.
Include events of the type "Error": Events labeled in the Windows EventView as "Error" will also be downloaded and displayed in the report, if you enable this function.
Include events with key words: Specify the key words, which will be used as search parameters for the events. Events which include these key words in the title or in their text, will be displayed in a separate list. The settings for the number of events and the level of events previously specified will also be considered during the scan. For example, if you only want to find the last 100 events with the label "Warning" - only those will be shown in a separate list, which have been scanned using these search parameters.
Ignore events with key words: Events containing key words in the title or the text will not be shown in the report. This is useful, if you have recurring events, which you don't want displayed every time.
