Internet Explorer 7 has a feature which allows Windows to create event logs that may be used in case the browser crashes. Unlike other applications where the event logger is enabled by default, it is disabled on Internet Explorer 7 by default. This article will show you how to enable Internet Explorer's event logger.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start" on the desktop's toolbar, type "eventvwr.msc" into the search bar, and hit the "Enter" key on the keyboard. On older versions of Windows, click "Start," then "Run," type "eventvwr.msc" into the input box, and click "OK." This will bring up the Event Viewer.

  2. 2

    Click on "Applications and Service Logs" located on the left sidebar of the Event Viewer. A list of applications and services will appear.

  3. 3

    Locate "Internet Explorer" on the list, right-click on it, and select "Properties."

  4. 4

    Check the "Enable Logging" box and click on "OK" to apply the settings. You may have to restart Internet Explorer for the new settings to take effect.
