    You need to look at the details of the errors. It is difficult to tell without knowing what you were doing on the PC when the error occurred.

    Joe, these are atfer start up, as I shut my PC down every night.
    Does that help at all?

    Look at the details of the events (double click an event to see the detail). Do you have a wireless or network printer?

    In my opinion you have nothing to be concerned about. I've just looked at Administrative Events on 4 different devices (3 running Win 10 Pro x64 Release 1511; 1 running Win 10 Home x64 Release 1607) and all of them are littered with similar dire-sounding errors. It's amazing they can boot at all... yet, like yours, they are all running well.

    I suspect it is just a surfeit of caution in logging events. For example, if you drill down into the PrintService errors (Event ID's 370 and 215) which keep occurring, does it show failure issues with Microsoft XPS Document Writer? Mine do. (Does anyone actually use Microsoft's attempt to supplant Adobe's PDF format?)

    The Service Control Manager errors? All usually very normal, I'm afraid. Your system tries to do something but is a nanosecond too slow in responding, because other processes are fighting for the same RAM and CPU, so an error is logged... yet all the system usually does is try again and think "no harm, no foul". It looks bad but it's entirely normal. For example, if you drill down into the Service Control Manager (Event ID 7031) errors, do they say something like "blah blah blah terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 10000 milliseconds: Restart the service." In the time it took me to type that sentence my system could have logged that error and performed the corrective action 200 times... and I wouldn't have noticed 'cos my system runs fine.

    From the looks of your taskbar you have a lot going on (and a large monitor or exceptional eyesight ). Your screenshot shows the errors logged on 3 consecutive days at around the same time. I suspect it's the time you switch your PC on. All those little bits of Notification Area customisations all trying to start up at about the same time. I would be very surprised if you didn't get lots of errors logged.

    Hope this helps...

    Isn't this the page that the phone scammers get you to look at to try and convince you that your PC is about to blow up and only their (very expensive) malware (sorry software) can fix it?

    Mine too has many errors and warnings...

    Rick, many thanks for the explanation.
    Maybe I should not worry about event viewer too much.
    Regards

    Yes. I've heard reports of it being used that way.

    I keep getting DCOM 10016 errors on boot which is a Permissions issue.

    I did follow a tutorial to fix it on a Win 7 machine (but have now forgotten what I did), but as I'm not aware of any adverse effects, I'm just leaving it.

    I use a wireless printer but isn't switched on when I boot up which I believe causes my Printer errors but I'd have a look at those Task Scheduler warnings, ESENT and I think are CAPI2 errors - just Google them with their Event ID No.

    You still need to look at the detail of the events. Just because someone else has similar errors logged does not necessarily mean they are the same errors.

    Joe, thanks for the advice. I will look at the errors, but unfortunately with my limited
    knowledge not sure how successful I'll be.

    You'll be successful looking at the errors, any you don't understand you can post here.

    cheers, Paul
