NT 4.0 Server events - yes still NT 4.0

by malicej / July 14, 2005 11:17 PM PDT

Would checking instances of System event #6006 be a good indication of how often an NT 4.0 Server, SP 6a is rebooted? If not, what event # should I look for.

Thank you.

I feel you should do the legwork and tell what event 6006 is so I don't have to look it up.

6006 - event log was stopped
6009 - Microsoft (R) Windows NT (4) 4.0 1381 Service Pack 6 Uniprocessor free
6005 - event log was started

Does #6009 mean I'm running SP6 and not SP6a? Sorry but I'm not as sharp on NT 4.0 as 2003 Server and we have one NT 4.0 Server that needs to stay until after October, 2005. Thank you for your time.

Those are great ones to chose.

Just a thought. I'd pick either "6009 - Microsoft (R) Windows NT (4) 4.0 1381 Service Pack 6 Uniprocessor free or "6005 - event log was started " sine the "6006 - event log was stopped" may not occur if there is a fault, BSOD or power interruption.

I'm getting dull and rusty on NT 4.0 too. I ran it from about when it came out to just 2 years ago at office, home and used it till the bits wore out.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
