Computer Management Computer Management is a saved MMC console that includes common snap-ins used to manage your computer. Some common ways to start Computer Management include: Right-click the Start menu and select Computer Management . Select Start > All Apps > Windows Administrative Tools > Computer Management . Search for Computer Management . In the Control Panel, open System and Security > Administrative Tools , then double-click the Computer Management icon. Event Viewer Use Event Viewer to view logs about programs, system events, and security. Each entry is listed as a warning, error, or information event. Events are added to the following logs: The Application log contains a list of all application-related events such as application installations, un-installations, and application errors. The System log contains a list of all system-related events such as system modifications, malfunctions, and errors. The Security log contains a list of all security-related events such as security modifications and user login events. Additional logs might be added by applications or services. Services A service is a program that processes requests from other applications or users. Services can start automatically and stay constantly running in the background, waiting for service requests. Use the Services snap-in to view and manage running services. The service startup behavior determines how the service is started. When set to Automatic, the service is started automatically by Windows when the system boots. When set to Manual, the service must be manually started. When Disabled, the service will not run. Performance Monitor Performance Monitor displays statistics that tell you about the operation of your computer. A counter identifies a specific statistic, such as % Processor Time or % Disk Free Space. You can add or remove counters to customize the statistics you can see. Real-time data are displayed in a graph. Performance Monitor by itself does not save any data. To save statistics over time, use a data collector set. Reliability Monitor Reliability Monitor maintains historical data that describe the operating system's stability. Overall system stability is given a stability index that ranges from 1 to 10 (10 being the most stable). The stability rating is affected by application, hardware, Windows, and other failures.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
