    Where can I find Windows explorer in event viewer?

    I started up my computer and Windows explorer randomly froze up and hung.
    I didnt do anything to provoke it. I just sat here waiting for my computer to boot up.
    Then when I thought it was finished I opened firefox.
    Then Windows explorer just freezes completely. I tried doing windows key + r. It opened the run window but it froze. Then I tried moving my mouse on the right to open up the charm bar, ( I think it's called that) to hit settings and then restart. When I clicked settings the whole bar just closed out and would close out every time.
    I right clicked on the task bar to try and open task manager. When I clicked on task manager it wouldn't ever open.
    So I couldn't even shut down properly. I just pushed the power button. Then I turned it on again and the same exact thing happened.
    So I shut it off again.
    Then I turned it back on and went to msconfig before it froze up and I set it to boot into safe mode.
    Then I got into safe mode and ran a malware bytes scan and an avast scan. Nothing came up on either so I just went back to normal boot. The problem stopped now but I want to know what caused that whole thing to happen because it hasn't happened to me before.
    So I want to look at event viewer to see if that'll explain it.
    Where would I find that at in event viewer?

    Go to Control Panel , open Administrative Tools . The Event viewer is the 5th option in the list .
    Hope this helps .
    note the Control Panel can be accessed from the All apps list on the start screen or the Desktop toolbar
    note 2 the problem should show in Windows Logs under System or Application
