    Hi Guys - looking for advice from the experts ...

    Running Windows XP SP3 and using the Event Viewer, I've got two areas of possible concern:

    In Security, I regularly record Failure Audit for Event 615, and am advised to run IPSec monitor snap-in. I've no idea what this means and I don't have any programme of that name to run.

    In System, I also regularly record Service Control Manager for Event 7000, and am advised that the StarOpen service can't find the necessary file. I don't appear to have such a service.

    Do I need to concern myself with either of these regularly occurring features?

    Event viewer will list information and sometimes errors under System, Applications and Security.
    And while that information is helpful, if you are not having problems in running your Pc - there is no reason to be concerned about them.

    Thank you for the quick reply - no, I'm having no problem with the computer - it was just curiosity. Darwinian survival has given me a need to worry over quite inconsequential matters; if there were no events reported then I would worry whether the event viewer was working.

    Darwin has a lot to answer for ;) - or so I'm told.
    Event viewer seems to be doing its job.
