Windows 7 - Event ID 4647 not populating in event logs

Q: Windows 7 - Event ID 4647 not populating in event logs

Have an issue I've been dealing with for several weeks. I have a standalone system that certain event IDs such as 4647 and 4634 and others are not populating in the security log. Success and failures is set in the Local Group Policy,
but they are not being logged. Performed gpupdate after making changes, and scoured the internet for a solution. Any ideas? Was this an issue in the past that an MS patch corrected? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 - Event ID 4647 not populating in event logs

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:"Event Log Explorer" tool helps manage/analyze/report on your Windows Event Logs

I use the subscription to EventID.net. It has been greatly helpful. I don't have this analyser but am a big believer in using the Event Viewer. I'll add a description I have written up which will help in determining the Events: This may be useful in addition to the Event Analyzer.

One thing I have not been able to do is keep the filters set with the software in the OS.

Find the Error(s)in the Event Viewer that correspond to the crash/freeze/error message/blue screen, etc.:

Description of the Event Viewer:

Unfortunately, many Windows XP users aren't aware of the Event Viewer, what it is, where it is, how it can help with a problem:
The Event Viewer has logs for everything that happens on the computer. There are three sets of logs: System, Applications and Security. By opening the first two to display the Events, you can look for Errors that correspond to the time of the problem- in your case, the crash.

There are three types of Events in the System and Apps logs:
1. Information (white circle w/blue i): this is just basic documentation of the normal working of the System or Apps.
2. Warnings (yellow triangle w/black exclamation mark) noting some problem at that moment. Warnings usually resolve on their own. If they do not, they become>>>
3. Errors (red circle w/white X- they document something that didn't work or isn't happening as it should. Each Errors has three parts: an ID#, a Source and a Description. By doing a right clic... Read more

I was running 3DMark06 and got a BSOD code 124. After that every time I boot Event Viewer logs Error Codes ID 3012 and 3011. Attached are screenshots of both.

I googled this and found two different threads where someone suggested to rebuild the performance counters. Both responses were basically the same, below is one. Neither of the OP's came back and said if this worked for them.

Re: LoadPerf 3011, 3012
I had the same problem with LoadPerf and here is what I found out:
All performance counter names and explain text are maintained in string tables managed by the performance counter subsystem (Perflib).

The current contents of the performance counter string tables are corrupted and cannot be displayed. To correct the problem, rebuild the string tables.

User Action
To rebuild the string tables, on the computer that displayed the message, at the command prompt, type Lodctr /r
The contents of the string tables are automatically rebuilt.

I hope this helps

Since this was from 2008 (XP?) and the other response was for Vista I wanted to see if the guru's at SevenForums thought that this was okay before I did this.

Here are the screenshoots of my two errors.

After too many unexplained problems, I decided to reinstall Windows 8.1 Pro x64, and migrate off of SBS 2011 Standard. In addition to the primary workstation that can't read any event logs, I built five Server 2012 R2 servers (Hyper-V host, Active Directory
VM, Exchange 2013 VM, SQL Server 2014 VM, and WSUS VM).

I was diagnosing why my workstation's Outlook cannot reach the local Exchange Server.   I tried to look at the event logs, and found the
Event Viewer cannot open the event log or custom view.  Verify that Event Log service is running (it is) or the query is too long (whatever that indicates).  The request is not supported (50)
Looking at the directory of the event logs folder.  It appears that most logs are empty, which is understandable since it's a rebuilt installation.  I found a small number of Applications and Services Logs and it appears nothing was logged since
six days ago on 4/4/2016.   On support forums, I found many have this exact problem on Win 7, Win 8, and Win 10.  Of the solutions posted none of them would even execute on my Win 8.1 Pro x64 machine.  I tried clearing the event logs (WEVTUTIL
CL logfilename) and am told Failed to clear log .... The request is not supported. 
It's very difficult to diagnose why Outlook 2013 cannot reach Exchange 2013, even if Outlook is installed on the Exchange server machine (just as a test).  The web-based Outlook owa, ecp, ... all work fine. ... Read more

Alright, started getting the 1001 BugCheck crash with Event 41 Kernel-Power BSOD a few times not long ago, widely spaced out incidents (it will lock up, make a very weird repetitive noise through my stereo speakers and will also get black and white bars across the screen before the blue screen turns up and asks for restart option choice). And Event 4 k57nd60a has been ongoing for as long as I can remember.

Any ideas?

Memory exception but we need to examine the DMP files to find out why.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb ... Read more

Previous replies noted that the Administrative Events under the Custom view was just a compilation of all the other logs.
I do not belive this is entirely correct as all the events in this log concern the operating system and do NOT appear in the other logs such as Application, Security, etc.

Apologies if the question has been asked before, but I've tried a search for this sort of event, without success. I've made it a practice to clear the Event Logs prior to shutting down (somewhat anal, I know!), so that - if anything goes pear-shaped during a session - I might have a chance of tracking it down, as I've only got that day's logs to view. In Vista Ultimate, you can filter the Windows Logs for that viewing, but I can see a way of getting the filter ("Warning" only) to stick permanently. Saving the filters as a custom view only seems to last for that session too. Is there a way, please?TIA! Ray.

I would try to correct the error by running sfc /scannow, if that doesn't fix the problem you may have other file corruption/manifest issues; check the log located in C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Another possibility would be to uninstall/reinstall KB3035583. Disabling the GWX associated tasks in Task Scheduler is a bit of a problem, see this post for the gory details.

Me? I'd just uninstall KB's 2952664 & 3035583, hide them & be done with the Win 10 upgrade nuisance.

EVENT_FILTER_TYPE_SCHEMATIZED flag instead of the EVENT_FILTER_TYPE_EVENT_ID, the provider gets enabled so I came to the conclusion that the
EVENT_FILTER_TYPE_EVENT_ID is the invalid parameter.

Enabling the session:
The LogFileMode member of the EVENT_TRACE_PROPERTIES
AND EVENT_TRACE_PRIVATE_IN_PROC (<- supports this mode scoped filters?).

According to
MSDN enabling scoped filters should be possible for private logging mode sessions or am I missing something?

Hi all, and thanks in advance.
I have a new Windows 8.1 Dell laptop (one week old).  Windows is fully updated, as is Firefox (with NoScript and Web of Trust), Avast! free, and Malwarebytes.  I have not used Windows 8 before so I am not sure what is normal.  The computer runs fine, but I need to use my computer for sensitive financial information on occasion, so I need to be sure.
One odd event yesterday had me digging in the event viewer.  I found 2 types of events that unsettled me.
1)  I was playing a game when the screen flashed black, twice.  I have only integrated graphics, but this is not a graphically intensive game (Dungeon Crawl, if you know it). I checked my graphics drivers and they are up to date.  A look at the event viewer revealed three items in the security log: a blank password query followed by a logon and then a special logon.
I have copied and pasted them, separated by "---".  There was a lot of code after each event that I haven't posted to save space; also, I've "XXXXX"ed out the name of the computer and the account.

I ordered this computer from CyberPower. I've listed the relevant specs below. I've read a lot of other people having similar issues, but there doesn't seem to be any concrete answers. My computer randomly freezes and locks up requiring a hard reset to continue. The everything except the mouse freezes, and then eventually the mouse will too. The HDD light is inactive. Event Viewer shows nothing except "The previous system shutdown at 3:44:01 PM on ‎1/‎19/‎2012 was unexpected." This seems to happen at completely random intervals. It usually happens when I'm browsing the web or watching a streaming video (netflix), but it has also happened while loading a program or not doing anything at all. There have been only a couple consistencies. It has never done this while playing a game (I play Starcraft II and Battlefield 3). While trying to reinstall BF3 it has locked up the past 5 times I've tried to install the game.I have reinstalled Windows. Installed current drivers. Run Memtest with no fails. Run Intel?s diagnosis software on the SSD with not issues. I?m assuming this is a hardware problem. What further troubleshooting can I do to narrow down the suspects?

Hi everyone. I was just wondering if there was any real purpose in cleaning up the event/security logs ?
The actual size they take up seems minimal and I'm pretty sure mine are set to overwrite themselves when they are full.
So I guess my question is - to clean or not to clean ? pro's/con's

A:Event Logs - clean up or not ?

IMHO, no.

Microsoft Corporation

You can list the contents of an event log, sort by source, group by message type and more. To get the a whole log use the following command: get-eventlog [log name] get-eventlog Application

If you wish to sort the records by source use this command: get-eventlog Application | sort Source You can also group the records by Source, it can take a while depending on the number of records, but it is handy! Just run:
get-eventlog Application | group Message

Now event logs can get quite large and hold thousands and thousands of records. You can use the -Newest ### switch to retrieve a set number of the latest events recorded And, of course, these can all be combined to get exactly what you are looking for.
get-eventlog Application -newest 100 | sort source

Is any way to join several event logs in one?

A:Join Event logs

If you are talking about Windows Logs, actually there is a way. When you open Event Viewer, you will see a 'Custom Views' group in the left sidebar. By right clicking on it you get a menu from which you can select 'Create Custom View'. That opens a new window, where you have to check the first radio button that says "by log" (it is checked by default but make sure), and on its right side there is a dropdown menu from which you can pick logs that you want. After clicking OK and naming your custom view, you will have a list of all the events from all the logs you selected.

Hi guys
i dont really look into my event logs because usually, i dont have the need too.

i randomly decided to look into my event log (while doing some maintenance on my setup)
and found some strange events.

two distinct event logs which are somewhat related.

Problem 1. I can cause the following event by removing my iPod from my pc via iTunes (remove virtually not physically)

Following events have
Log name: Microsoft-Windows-WMI-Activity/Operational
Event ID: 5858
Level: Error

Event 1:
Id = {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}; ClientMachine = SHADY-PC; User = NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM; ClientProcessId = 2992; Component = Unknown; Operation = Start IWbemServices::ExecQuery - root\wmi : select * from WDMClassesOfDriver where ClassName = "MSStorageDriver_ClassErrorLogEntry"; ResultCode = 0x80041032; PossibleCause = Unknown

Event 2:
Id = {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}; ClientMachine = SHADY-PC; User = NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM; ClientProcessId = 2992; Component = Unknown; Operation = Start IWbemServices::ExecQuery - root\wmi : select * from WDMClassesOfDriver where ClassName = "MSStorageDriver_ClassErrorLog"; ResultCode = 0x80041032; PossibleCause = Unknown

Event 3:
Id = {00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}; ClientMachine = SHADY-PC; User = NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM; ClientProcessId = 2992; Component = Unknown; Operation = Start IWbemServices::ExecQuery - root\wmi : select * from WMIBinaryMofResource where Name = "IDE\\DiskOCZ-VE... Read more

Look in the text document you attached cuz i've put them by Event ID (written in the text document):
Event ID: 40968
The Security System has received an authentication request that could not be decoded. The request has failed.

Problem with your system.
Event ID: 1060
\??\C:\Windows\SysWow64\drivers\mdvrmng.sys has been blocked from loading due to incompatibility with this system. Please contact your software vendor for a compatible version of the driver.

it's either replaced by a recently installed software or infected by a virus.
Event ID: 7000
The Mobile IP Route Manager service failed to start due to the following error:
This driver has been blocked from loading

Again it's either a virus blocking it from running or the driver got messed up.
1- Event ID: 40968
Since it has the Level: Warning then I think you better try System Restore Point, if still does the same problem, run a full system scan for viruses and if you find viruses in C:\WINDOWS, then you should Format / Reinstall Windows cuz if viruses can't be fixed they will be autmoticly quarentined and leads to lose of files for windows.

Thank you lots!!

Probably nothing to be concerned about, those are typical entries on my system.Comments from http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,655...ty,1~mode=flat:"A successful user logon is always listed as an event ID 528 and then you'll see a type which can be anything from 2 to 7. If it's not 528, then it's not an actual user and it's not necessarily successful.Event ID 538 is a successful logoff and not necessarily by an actual user.Event ID 540 is a successful "network" logon as in mapping a network drive. Your computer keeps checking for Network connections or shared folders, etc... on a regular basis to make sure you are connected."LouisWhat Is Anonymous Logon?

We are reading the event log information in our application from using query in windows management service and Java script. The required event log is based on the current system time that we send through the query to fetch the details. We face a problem while fetching a event log of Windows xp and Windows-7 as the actual time the error message logs differs from the system time. Also the time difference is not same in all the machines of same configuration.

Example : Conider an error is logged in windows event log at 05.00 AM but the time logged as 02.00 AM (which can also 07.00 AM or any difference of time) in the event log. Now I was unable to decide the exact time of an error log.

We made a workaround in Windows-7 by fetching it using Record ID which is increasing for every event log but the same does not work in Windows-XP as the record id is not increasing and does not look to have a standard format.

Kindly provide us some solution to fetch the error log information of the particular time.
