Where does XP keep / store the log?

Computer re-booted.

M$ft web site said to check for HDD errors.

I have scheduled the HDD for a complete scan, which will be performed upon re-boot.

Thanks.

It should log initially to bootlog.txt. However if it completes successfully the file is deleted and imported into the event log. So if there is something getting logged but you can't find it with Event viewer then your probable $OL.

Are you talking about the chkdisk log?

Open the Event Viewer and select the Applications log. Look for the Winlogon entry that corresponds to the reboot following the chkdsk run.

There are LOTs of entries in the event viewer. I should have responded, #3, "I don't see an error checking report."

Yes. Thank you for educating me.
I have found it. [ Eureka! ] :)

Sincerely,
