Good morning, thanks for the splendid program and for the help.

I m in need of monitoring the Event Logs but I m encountering difficulties in setting a rule for capturing specific Events.

Could you plz explain how to correctely configure the "Source" and "@" fields ?

I' m a little confused about their use.

Thx again

Hi tasselor,

"@" is the field for the log name (for example, Application, System, Security, Internet Explorer, etc), and "Source" is the source that you see in the details of a specific event. When you have chosen a log in the "@" field, click the refresh button to the right of the "Source" field to load the list of available sources and then you can choose from the drop-down list.
So you might end up with something like:

Source: [Service Control Manager] @ [System]

(square brackets are just to show the input fields, do not enter them).

All logs and sources are listed in the registry, see "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog".
