EventLogSourcesView 1.00 (32-bit)
What's using your event logs? NirSoft's tool explains all

If a Windows application is misbehaving then browsing your event logs can sometimes tell you more, as they'll display all kinds of error and status messages that aren't visible any other way.

Does your application actually use the event logs to record anything, though? Most programs don't bother to tell you, and Windows won't either - but that's where the tiny EventLogSourcesView comes in.

Launch this portable program and it'll display a complete list of all the event log sources (all the components which are logging events) on your system: the source name, event type ("Application", "System" and so on), "Registry Modified" (the date when the component was added to your PC), relevant file names, and more.

By default this includes a lot of Windows components, but if you click the "Registry Modified" column header to sort by installation date, then scroll to the bottom of the report, it'll become easier to understand. You'll see all recently added event log sources, and if your problem application is on the list, then you'll know that it's at least capable of adding information to your logs.

Verdict:

It's one of NirSoft's more technical tools, but EventLogSourcesView is still useful as a quick way of understanding which of your applications might make use of the event logs

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
