I believe you're talking about the Event viewer. There is one in Windows XP which can be accessed via:
Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer
Then there you go, Event Viewer!
how about keyloggers? there are many loggers out there which will give u every detail of the event in the computer. there are loggers that can actually log only the stuffs u wanna know... anywayz google for more answers and softwares
Both the tailforwin32 and Windows 2003 Resource Kit fits my needs.
I don't want a log event monitor but a text viewer like 'tail'.
thanks for all your responses.
