When you use Event Viewer to troubleshoot a problem, you need to locate events related to the problem, regardless of which event log they appear in. Event Viewer enables you to filter for specific events across multiple logs. That makes it easy to display all events potentially related to an issue that you are investigating. To specify a filter that spans multiple logs, you need to create a custom view.
Services are often run with default settings - for example, a service might be disabled automatically at startup. You can use the Services snap-in to change the default settings for a service. This is useful if you are troubleshooting service failures or if you need to change the security account under which a service runs.
