[ Event viewer export script ]

I am very new to scripting but I would like to script something useful for my company. I would like to be able to export a users event viewer logs in the click of a button without having to remote onto their PC and check event viewer, or access their share. I want it to be even that much faster so that it would automatically send me those files maybe in a zip folder perhaps? I am not too sure where to start with this though.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

A good start would be this tutorial, for PowerShell :

The Admin’s First Steps: Scan Multiple Event Logs (HSGB)

there could be other ways, but PS provides some very convenient cmdlets to accomplish this.
