    Hello Everyone: Whenever I try to view the Log, I get the top screen with the three optons, but I only get the bottom screen no-matter which of the three I click on, is it corrupt or something? Why can't I get the Event Log to come up? Thanks, Tom PS: Please see picture here>> [​IMG]
    Hope I did it right, first time using PhotoBucket
