    Hi:

    I have forgotten what it was called, but there was a free application or software that you could use it to analyze the event logs and it would give you the possible cause of the issue. You did not need to search the web and try to fins what the issue was.

    So does anyone know what that software is called or where to get it. Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the reply, but this is not the software that I was looking for. Still I will give it a try.

    Well it was a 3rd part app similar to whocrash that your ran and it would analyze the event log and identify the culprit that caused the error ID. I came across it 2 years ago, but can not find it since I forgot what it was called.

    The closest I could find and also may interest you people is called "Windows error lookup tool". You simply put the error code or id in and it tells you what is the cause. Its not the software that I was looking for but very close to it.

    Nice little program, did it list the details of the error code you were having issues with, and possibly a solution?

    Well it had the event ID in it but the meaning and result was different from what online and what the it realy means.

    Event ID 46, volmgr is about crash dump initialization issue but this program said event ID 46 is a critical system error needed to be addressed and very dangerous. Very different meaning and a scary one.

    I think event id 46 by its elf may means a critical system error but with volmgr means something else like crash dump issue.

    Interesting. Why cant MS just put it in simple terms, for easy understanding and say advanced definition for IT. Simply; this is the problem this is how u fix it, after all what's the point of having Program compatibility service, error reporting and event log etc that track these sort of things. MS Fixit is another failure that has never helped me in the past. It cant fix the majority of errors.

    I guess a reinstall or reverting to an image is just much easier than going through the headache. Just shows the importance of a clean image.

    Anyway. Hope u get it sorted.

    regards.
