Hi Mike,

I have always had 'Internet Explorer' listed in my 'Event Viewer' too, at least as long as I have been running IE8.  And, for what it's worth ... there is nothing listed in my 'Internet Explorer' heading either.

I always liked the way I could go to 'Event Viewer' and check to see how many updates Avast had in a certain time period.  I for one will miss that, but time marches on and nothing stays the same.

Regards,

2harts4ever

I have never seen anything in 'Internet Explorer' and in fact I only have 'Application' and 'System' tabs in Event Log Explorer on XP Pro and 'Application',  'Media Center', 'Security' and 'System' on Win7

I can never recall Internet Explorer in the event viewer, so my guess is that it is placed there on installation/update to IE8. Though two things, I rarely visit the event viewer and don't use IE other than the occasional manual foray into windows update.
