When I was dealing with the SharePort issue, I was looking for additional tools and things to help me with the troubleshooting process
I had been pouring through the system logs on the XP and Vista systems as well.
In the end I found these particular post especially helpful:
Monitoring Event Logs in Windows Vista – Windows Networking
Windows Vista Event Viewer – Computer Performance UK
One really golden find in my Web-diving was discovery of the Ask the Performance Team bog.
- Ask the Performance Team : Understanding Crash Dump Files
- Ask the Performance Team : Capturing Application Crash Dumps
Both are really in-depth and fascinating explorations of the Windows crash-dump process and post-mortem review. Darn good stuff.
Here are some freeware software solutions to help with program installation monitoring and logging:
InstallWatch - (freeware) – Epsilon Squared
InstallSpy - (freeware) – scroll to the bottom of the page to find.
Advanced Uninstaller PRO - (trialware/$)
In the end, none of these helped me, but I thought I would pass them on anyway.
