    Logs, you scare me sometimes...

    Since a few days I've been peeking inside the logs that Windows make... and all those entries. I wonder where they are all good for. And most are warnings about things of which I think: BRRR! Did my PC do that?! Most of the time I'm just hanging around the internet or I game most of the time.

    But those logs: is it really worth to be worried about them? I mean, must I have sleepless nights about those entries? (I think: Uh-Oh! Now it's the time that I get a BSOD of that or maybe broke into my PC? Paranoļa ensues!)

    Can someone tell me that those logs are genuinely harmless or is my poor little PC really at a superrisk of crashing down on me (and my stack of games)?

    TBH I'm a complete ass and I know jicketyjack about those errors n stuff...

    We use event logs to troubleshot and identify the cause of errors. You should only worry about error logs when repairing Windows OS and application errors.
