Event Viewer in pre-Vista platforms suffers from several limitations that make it underperform as a troubleshooting tool. These limitations include a lack of support for centralized logging, inability to query across multiple logs, limited event filtering capability, and a general lack of "software intelligence" in terms of helping you understand how different events correlate with possible problems and how they can be resolved.

Windows Vista's enhanced version of Event Viewer is a big improvement in many of these areas, and while it's still not perfect (especially in the area of software intelligence) it's still a good step forward over the previous version of the tool. Let's walk through using some of these new features so you can learn how to use their capabilities for troubleshooting purposes.
