What are the odds?

So when I get into the office this morning, one of my Windows machines has rebooted and is happily waiting for me to log in, which interrupted a long running task that I had it working on when I left yesterday evening.

In my investigation to find out if this machine rebooted due to a power outage or due to a Windows Update, I filtered the system event log and found this entry:

I find it interesting that the computer picked that exact second to stop the event log service.

BTW, a posthumous Happy Birthday to John Belushi, who left us far too soon.
