EventLog Inspector
An easier way to work with your PCs Event Logs

EventLog Inspector is an excellent free (for non-commercial use) program which helps you get more from the Windows event logs.

Launch the program, click Start Service, and immediately you'll see a small graph showing "error" and "warning" events for this PC over the last 14 days. These events don't always mean very much, but once you're used to how your system looks normally, you'll see at a glance whether there's something unusual going on.

If your PC has been misbehaving recently, click EventLogs > Generate Custom Report. There are useful options here, but just click "Generate" for now and EventLog Inspector produces a detailed HTML report covering all the system log events for the past 8 hours. (We found the scripting didn't work properly in Internet Explorer - sections of the report wouldn't open and close correctly - so if you notice the same, open it in some other browser instead.)

One notable issue with Windows events is you generally don't notice them until long after they've happened, when you happen to open the logs. EventLog Inspector can display popups to warn you of alerts as they happen, though: just click Settings > Popups to choose the options you need.

The program also has the ability to forward system events to an email address, very useful if you're trying to diagnose a problem on someone else's PC.

And there's even an Export option which saves events to an external database, perhaps interesting if you'd like to analyse what's happening across all your networked systems.

Version 3.2.3 "FIXED: Replacing non-printable symbols with hexadecimal codes". (Changelog).

Verdict:

An excellent troubleshooting tool, packed with features yet still surprisingly easy to use

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
