    Do you mean import/export views? I found that one day when I bored and digging deeper into Windows 7. You can do that with a few of the Administrative Tools programs.

    On the right side of Event Viewer you can attach a task to that custom view like maybe a warning toast or email when a specific event happens. Event Viewer is really a very powerful tool, just a little complicated when using in conjunction with other tools. It's really there to find specific events and not, as most people do, to browse all critical(usually meaningless) events.

    I've never really had much need to use event viewer in the past tbh, however this last issue has been a real exception where I needed to do a bit of detective work. Its usually simple things like check disk logs I look at, such as where I have left chkdsk running and its rebooted and then I want to see what the final outcome was.
