Here's how it works: Enter '1001' (for example) or 'error 1001' and note that a relevant result appears as one of the top results overall and within the Support & Troubleshooting category. Each page referenced has an informative title, which includes the phrase "Events & Errors Help," followed by the product it applies to, the error source, and error number. When you click on an "Events & Errors" item in these Search results, it provides the error info we have on file, and it provides links to relevant Knowledge Base articles.
