How to export system event logs:

System event logs can be a valuable source of diagnostic data when troubleshooting various issues.

You may export event logs using the attached evt_logs.zip utility as follows:
- Extract the downloaded archive to a folder of your choice.
- Double-click the extracted run.bat.
- Wait for the batch to finish its run (until the "black" window is closed).
- Find the newly created evtlogs.7z file in the same folder and provide it to moderators.



You may also export event logs manually (for example if the utility is not working properly) as follows:

Windows 2000/XP

1. Press the Windows logo key+R.
2. Type eventvwr.msc into the opened window, and then click OK.
3. In the left navigational tree, click Application.
4. On the Action menu, click Save Log File As.
5. Type the appropriate file name (for example application.evt).
6. Save the file.
7. Repeat steps 3 through 6, but this time select System.

Windows Vista/7

1. Press the Windows logo key+R.
2. Type eventvwr.msc into the opened window, and then click OK.
3. Expand the Windows Logs folder in the left navigational tree, and then click Application.
4. On the Action menu, click Save All Events As.
5. Type the appropriate file name (for example application.evtx), and then click Save.
6. Repeat steps 3 through 5, but this time select System.

You can compress the log files and provide them to moderator either as an attachment to your post or by using an online storage service.
