I don't have currently any problems with windows. Everything is working
perfectly. No crashes with windows or IE. No viruses or spyware, althoug I
visist sometimes XXX related sites. No device related problems either.

Whats' going on? Windows shouldn't be that stable. It's supposed to crash at
least sometimes. WXP is nowadays too good to be true. Has Microsoft really
managed to create stabile graphical OS or is this only illusion before great
disaster?

What "other" software utilities have you installed onto Windows? Surely
you are not running XP without some type of anti-virus and firewall running!

Having a clean Event Log is no big deal. The only errors in my event viewer
are several application errors for 1602.exe, which belongs to the game 1602
AD. I was using it for testing and knew it would produce errors, but other
than that, I have no other errors in any logs.

I have not had a blue screen crash since I installed SP2 and I agree the OS
is very stable. However there is still the occasional shutdown for unknown
reasons.
I run heartbeat to monitor the uptime and I have never got more that 4 days
without an unexplained shutdown.
I believe that the cause is the updates installed by Windows Update. One has
the system running stable. There is an unexplained shutdown. In the log one
sees that there has been an update installed within the last 24 hours.

Maybe Vista will be better.

Here's my uptime ... mind you that was 30 seconds ago :-) ...

System Uptime: 64 days, 22 hours, 36 minutes

Not running on XP, btw. And the only reason for it being that short was that
there was a power outtage and I have no ups attached to the computer.

Uptime is important for people just starting to get interested in taking
care of a system. I think every aspiring system administrator of computer
hobbyist should shoot for a 30 or 60 day uptime at least once.

Beyond that, uptime is a meaningless statistic. I can't remember I had an
unplanned or forced restart as a result of a problem, rather than a patch,
on a Windows operating system. I think it may have been during the
Neverwinter Nights Beta? No wait, I remember now. I installed the wrong
ATI video driver on my desktop in April and that caused some wierdness that
forced me into an unrecoverable restart situation. I don't think I've ever
needed to restart my Windows 2003 Server...

You need to have used it for at least one whole day, in order to do a proper
analysis.

Well, personally, I have never had a problem
