    Windows has it's hooks deep in a pc, so I am stunned that even today, Windows can still only give the most useless information for certain things such as random rebooting...It simply tells you 'The previous system shutdown at 1:50:27 PM on ‎7/‎15/‎2019 was unexpected.' ...Well no s*L: [email protected] ....LOL. Tell me WHY it shutdown unexpectedly! I chuckled at this in the same way the legendary pop-up windows error message from earlier windows versions that simply said 'error' and nothing else. LOL. It was that kind of uselessness.

    :)

    Error in Event Viewer

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    As you have mentioned, you have performed a repair installation on the computer and you see Event 508, 510 and 533 in Event Viewer.



    I would like to inform that if you see any critical error in Event Viewer, please share the event logs with us to help you with the appropriate troubleshooting steps. Please follow the steps mentioned below to share the event logs:



    1. Press Windows + X from the keyboard, select
      Event Viewer.
    2. Expand Windows Logs from the left pane and select
      Applications.
    3. Click Filter Current Log from extreme right pane. Then in the new windows check the box beside
      Error and click OK.
    4. Now, look for a critical Error in the list and note down the message/information from the
      General Tab in the lower section.


    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

    How is it in 2019 Windows Event Viewer is still laughably unhelpful?

    Event Viewer problem with latest Windows Build 1607

    After installing the new Windows build 1607, the Event Viewer stopped recording events under Diagnostic Performance. (Before 1607 I checked the files located under Windows.old dated 9/23/2016 and located this file which indeed did have a list of events
    recorded.)

    Since the initial 1607 download there have been two new builds automatically installed on my laptop.



    The last step in an automatic download is the RESTART. Prior to my rebooting, I checked the Diagnostic Performance and for sure, these had the list of events.



    Rebooting by me, causes the Diagnostic Performance errors to disappear.

    As suggested earlier I have run the SFC/DISM commands with no errors reported.

    Any Ideas?

    Nancy
