Abstract During the last ten years, the use of IT in companies has increased, including the use of software. With this increase, the number of errors encountered has increased too. Searching and correcting errors is a time consuming process, as it is needed to analyse where the error occurred before the correction can be done. Normally, programs can use Windows Event Log or log files to save information about which operation it has done and what errors that has happened. The project is based on a research where I asked several companies about theirs use of log files and event log. In this report I will explain how I analysed, designed and created a program that can find all log files in a system, and show a combined result of what errors there had been registered. Before I could create the program I had to analyse log files and event log to know its structure and what kind of information it was possible to get.
