  1. System...... Windows log Files.


    After rolling back my laptop from 10 to 8.1 over a week ago and did this weeks Windows 8.1 update, I cleaned up the Hard drive of all unnecessary files and ensured that my Settings did not permit Synchronization.

    Today, I had to use my Mobile Broadband connection which had a Data Limit remaining of 0.4Gb. Plenty left for a 30 minute Internet session....or so I thought!

    I just happened to run CCleaner and noticed that over 360 mb of Windows Log Files had been accumulated within 3 minutes of switching my laptop on.

    Before I downloaded Windows 10, Windows Log Files were never anywhere near as large as this time.

    Can anyone please give me an explanation as to why Microsoft is now gathering every keystroke and website visited?

    Is this a data collection now part of Windows 8.1 or a 'glitch hangover' remaining after downloading 10?

    Either way, it would cost me a fortune in Mobile Broadband fees if these Files were uploaded to Microsoft if I use my laptop any place other than at my home network.

    Ps. Since writing the above, my Windows Log Files have increased up 0.6mb!!!!!

    :)

    EventViewer logs are system specific such that those do not record a history of a user's actions.

    Here are some information sources for what can be gleaned from those logs.

    FullEventLogView - Free is a simple tool for Windows 10/8/7/Vista that displays in a table the details of all events from the event logs of Windows, including the event description. It allows you to view the events of your local computer, events of a remote
    computer on your network, and events stored in .evtx files. It also allows you to export the events list to text/csv/tab-delimited/html/xml file from the GUI and from command-line.

    TIP : Options - Advanced Options - allows you to see a time frame instead of the whole file - set it to a bit before and after the time of the EVENT.

    Please let us know the results and if you need further assistance. Feedback definitely helps us help all.

  3. System Log Files Question

    Just wondering where the System log files come from? Are the logs user specific (records of users actions) or are they system logs only (Pc Actions)?
