For clarification: You are looking for the error logs for programs and the OS itself, or do you have a virus/malware?

Thanks for the reply!

  1. Open the 'run' dialog box (Win key + r)

  2. Type eventvwr

  3. Hit enter

Or just to make things look less "magic", one can use the Start Menu/Cortana to find the Event Viewer.

I like software like advanced systemcare and glary utilities for easy windows maintenance.

If you want to try correcting fixing the errors (since others here have already told you about error logs) you could try the following:

  1. Open CMD Prompt as an Administrator (type 'cmd' into the start menu and then right click on the program and tell it to run as an administrator).
  2. sfc /scannow (will fix most typical operating system cfg problems/errors).
  3. chkdsk C: /R (will check your C: harddrive for disk related errors, needs a restart)
