Hi, I was recently helped here & Have done a reinstall with the excellent help of Hoov.I noticed In my events log though that I have already a ton of events.Most of which I don`t know much about.I have seen that It is common  to have errors in the Windows event viewer.Just not sure when It would be considered to many.
Anyhow I have a concern of 1 That I saw today I have posted an Image below. If anyone could tell me about this & If It Is an Issue Please.Thanks

The events with the yellow triangle are just warnings. The ones with the red circle are the ones to worry about. The white circle ones are just informative.

If you want to look up specific events, http://www.eventid.net/ is a good place to start.

If you want, save the logs you have questions about and I will take a look at them for you so we can go thru them.

Hi again Hoov! Thanks very much. :)1 I will check that site out.Is a leaked registry handle something to be concerned about?Thanks about the Info about the errors being more worrisome.I did not know this.Also,In your experience does that many Administrative Errors in such a short period of time seem normal?

Leaked registry handles can pretty much be ignored. It basically means it can't be closed as soon as the shutdown procedure wanted it to be closed. As for errors, that little snippet just showed a single error, that really is not that many. It is true that a cleanly running computer runs better and has fewer errors or warnings. The best thing to do is go after the errors one by one. Look it up on that page I gave you the link to. Fix any that keep repeating themselves. Then once errors are taken care of, go after the warnings using the same method. Unless it really affects how the computer is running, just take them slowly.

A word of caution, some errors or warnings are normal and can be ignored. It is up to you to figure them out though.
