MyEventViewer utility has a new ‘Auto Refresh’ feature that allows you to watch newly created events at the moment they are created, without the need to refresh the events list.

You can activate the ‘Auto Refresh’ mode from ‘Auto Refresh’ option under the Options menu, as displayed in the following screenshot. You can choose to check for new events every 1, 3, 5, or 10 seconds.

    I need to ask a favor and I am not sure if its possible … most of the interesting software is caught by symantec …is it possible to do something to stop this … the anti virus is managed by corporation so i cannot change it. Thanks a lot.

    It’s great 🙂

    It is possible to have the same thing in cmd line ? And to have an empty windows before polling, to be sure the event seen at a glance are new ?

    A fan from long time…

    Alan, switch AV products. Symantec is probably the weakest one of all.

    I tried the following but got no events:

    MyEventViewer.exe /EventLogNames “Microsoft-Windows-Windows Firewall With Advanced Security/Firewall”

    Is the name wrong?
