Clearing Event Viewer Administrative Logs in Windows 7

Q: Clearing Event Viewer Administrative Logs in Windows 7

The is another attempt at getting this answered.
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.
Below is an example of what is showing up on my system after all the individual logs shown under Event Viewer are cleared:

There are over 2000 of these events remaining after all the logs were cleared dating back to January of 2011 when I bought the computer.
So once again, How do I clear these logs? A command line method is fine as long as somebody can tell me the actual log name to use.

Preferred Solution: Clearing Event Viewer Administrative Logs in Windows 7

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.)

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.

Hi, I recieved a phone call today from someone claiming to be from Windows who wanted to walk me thru an issue on our computer. We had been alerted by them before because of a virus on computers at our IP address or something like (I was not the one to talk to them at that time) and we did find two trojans on one of the laptops in our household (now taken care of). However today he asked me to go to Event Viewer and look at the administrative events there. I have heard of event viewer, but I know next to nothing about what it does. He asked me to look at how many administrative events I had and when he heard the answer he asked me to download Ammyy for remote access to my computer. Because we have had phone calls about actual issues on our computers before I downloaded it and allowed him to do what he needed. He commented on how my computer is running slower and such which I have noticed, however I do know that I am using it a lot heavier now and doing some gaming on it so it is getting more use which I have attributed some of the slowness issues to. (Though that may or may not be true). When he quoted me on prices to remove the issues with my computer I told him I would phone him back because I needed to discuss with other members in my household as his offers were applicable to their computers as well. However when I went to find out more about Event Viewer and what he was trying to offer to remove I got some notices about scams.

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
Hi-
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

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.

If you have a lot of entries in the event logs, depending on your system, it can take a bit to open the logs.  Here is a way to clear all the 4 main event logs quickly.
Open a text editor (e.g. notepad), and copy the following into it.
 

@cls
@echo on
wevtutil.exe cl Application
wevtutil.exe cl Security
wevtutil.exe cl Setup
wevtutil.exe cl System
@echo off
pause
Save it as "clear_logs.bat" (no quotes).  Now, just double click on the file, and all 4 main logs will be cleared.  It will not work on Windows XP.
 
This will work on Windows 8.1 for sure.  It should work on Windows 8, 7, maybe Vista.
Have a great day!

Event Category: None
Event ID: 7000
Description: The LogMeIn Kernel Information Provider service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified.

A:Random Reboot: Event Viewer Logs

What is soffice? Is it Star Office? If it is I would try un-installing and re-installing to see if it solves the problem?

In order to figure out why you are getting random reboots, you need to make a settings change to your computer. Go to:

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Setup and Recovery 'Settings'

UN check 'Automatically Restart'. Click OK.

Reboot your computer. Now when Windows detects a problem it will not automatically reboot, but rather give you a blue screen.

Blue screens are often called 'Blue Screens of Death' (or BSOD) by users, and 'Stop Messages' by Microsoft. We need to know the exact message you see when you get the blue screen. We especially are looking for a set of letters and numbers about half way down the page that take this format:

0x0000008e

This is usually followed by a set of 4 similar numbers in parenthesis. For now we just need the first set of letter and numbers (before the numbers in the parenthesis).

From what i can tell from the dates this might of started when i went from xp to windows 7 which i'm not sure i did right now what i did was got home with the windows 7 and put the 64 bit disk in and installed it then that was somewhat ok but i was having issues with it and older programs so i decided to install the 32 bit version instead and everything seems to be working fine untill i get this call.

He eventually explained that i needed microsoft security essentials for windows 7 for the registered oem number and said it would cost $450 from the store or $229 online which wouldn't that all come with the new windows 7 cd and he said even if i reformatted i would still continue to have this issue how can that be i don't know. so any advice would be greatly appreciated and if you need more info let me know.

Howdy everyone. I've got a problem with my computer hard freezing (locking up, no input, have to perform a hard reboot) since July 15th. It seems impossible for me to diagnose this problem since I've never dealt with a recurring hard freeze before. My initial reaction was that the hardware was problematic, but at the same time I have no idea if it could be caused by a driver.

Attempted solutions so far:
Ran CHKDSK on both HDDs, no errors found (this is on a four-week old HDD with a fresh Windows 7 x64 install)
Ran Memtest+ for 7 hours, no errors found
Replaced the graphics card with a weaker one, problem still occurred
Constantly checking temps for overheating, card and processor rarely get above 40, but the computer still freezes during idle or low processing stages

Software-related
Uninstalled, and swept video card drivers, then reinstalled twice
Ran Driver Verifier (as of now), and no blue screens
Started checking for any errors in Event Viewer (none are related to the crash so far, as I've fixed about 5 random things getting reported)
Checked for dump files, to no avail
Reinstalled all motherboard drivers from the manufacturer

At this point, I'm at the end of my ideas, so I came to you guys. I have no idea what information I could provide to you that may be of assistance. While the computer is frozen, it is still powered on as well - I have to turn it off manually, if that is revealing of anything. I'm basically willing to try anything. Please let me know if you have a... Read more

I have been allowing a friend/neighbor access to my wifi to offset the cost of my internet. I was startled the other day when he mentioned that the Avaste anti virus he has installed on his computer detected malware on my computer over wifi during a scan.
I checked Event Viewer Security logs and found many logins from his computer going back to when I first allowed him access. In the System logs there are also several warnings and errors with 'browser' or 'bowser' as the sources. I don't want to confront him
or cut him off if these log events are fairly normal when sharing wifi. Any help/info would be appreciated. Oh, and i'm using Windows 7. Thanks.

Good evening. I've got something weird going on I'd like to ask for help with. Every time I close the Event Viewer or Task Scheduler I get a new "Administrative Tools" folder on the desktop. As far as I know, no other programs cause it, at least none of the ones I tested. I'm not exactly sure when it started but I know it hasn't always done it. I've already got Administrative Tools folders in my Start Menu. Anyone know what could be causing it? Thanks.

1. Every time I boot up the computer, the following error is generated in Event Viewer:
Source: DistributedCom, Event ID: 10010 

The server {F9717507-6651-4EDB-BFF7-AE615179BCCF} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

This key pertains to appID WinInetBrokerServer (CLSID WinInetBroker). I tried adding permissions to the key(s) but that didn't solve the problem. In the permissions for the key, the first user name listed is named Account Unknown (S-1-15-2-1).
I think maybe that may have something to do with it. I deleted the 6 registry keys associated with this key and everything worked but I was locked out of Windows XP Mode (Windows Virtual PC). I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions to fix this error?

EDIT: Moving this from 98 to XP as I believe you mis posted~~boopmeHey again -- I was looking through my config/driver/device files before doing a clean install w/Win 7. This Event Viewer shows many "Warning" entries about 2 months ago with messages like "Could not detect IIs installation module or IIS is disabled, skipping the Web Host script mappings component..." and "Your IP address xx.xxx etc. with Network Card xxxxxx is already in use on the network..." and under services (I think) it showed thing like "Remote registry editor enabled and started" along with my Alerter service having been disabled (says its to Alert Admin of any funny business). Are these normal errors or are they footprints of the intrusion I experienced? I'm trying to isolate where this might have come from. All entries before these were free of any Warnings. Thanks again!

A:Windows XP Pro Event Viewer

Hi,You're probably looking for the Windows XP Home and Professional board here, not the 95/98/ME one. IIS is the built-in webserver that comes with XP Pro. That's not too important. The warning with the IP address is only a problem if you're trying to allocate a static IP that's already used up and can't get into the internet. The "remote registry editor" thing is troublesome, as it allows anyone with your IP and admin password to edit your registry. I suggest you go into Administrative Tools -> Services and disable the Remote Registry service. I'm unsure of the Alerter problem, as I've never encountered it before.This may be linked to an intrusion, but you should disable the Remote Registry service ASAP.Cheers,--TroyEDIT: Thanks for the move, boop

Hi All,

Things have largely settled down with my Windows 10 upgrade, however I still get a flurry of Errors and Warnings whenever I shutdown and start my system.

When I shutdown correctly there are always 4 instances of Error 7031 generated. They refer to Service Control Manager and relate to User Data Access, User Data Storage, Contact Data and Sync Host and always state that the services terminated unexpectedly even though the Start/Power/Shutdown process was followed. There is usually a 10010 Error as well, referring to NLInternal.Sharedrecoactivation.

On Start I also get a flurry of Warning 200, 201, 202 and 219 as well. The 200, 201 and 202 warnings seem to relate to Windows 10 phoning home to Microsoft and not being able to.

In spite of this the system is working ok.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:HELP need to solve this problem asap - Unable to start event viewer/event log service

Fire up regedit and find this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog

With "Eventlog" highlighted on the left pane, you should be able to see a value called "ImagePath" on the right. ImagePath should be equal to this:

%SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k LocalServiceNetworkRestricted

If you can't see "ImagePath" in that location, or if it's not set to the text above, that's almost certainly your problem. If you're in the habit of using "registry cleaners", that might be the cause.

Hi,

I was hoping somebody could offer an insight on the below, as searching around I've not found much to go on other than "overheating"

Basically my laptop has been having very high temperatures for a long time (usually ~60C for CPU and often 100-110 for GPU...insanely high, in other words) For example, see how hot the machine gets just by resuming from a sleep (this is all within a minute or so):



I have been seeing the following error in event viewer each time I start Windows (4 entries) for some time:



So today I bit the bullet and had the back cover off the laptop and noticed what a bad state the thermal compound was in, for both the CPU and the chipset chip, so wiped it off using TIM Cleaner, and then applied new thermal compound and put the laptop back together. I was actually shocked because for the first time since I can remember, I could feel cold air blowing from the vents of my laptop! I logged into Windows and noticed that my temperatures had fallen and were staying at around the below:



Not as low as I'd like but a massive improvement. Trouble is, I am still getting the WHEA-Logger event errors in Windows Event Viewer ('processor core') and wondered if this was not in regards to overheating after all?

The plus side is my laptop is now almost totally silent - the way it must have been when I bought it new 3 years ago! But I was wondering how to investigate these WHEA-Logger errors, if anyone has any advice that'd be great.
