    Event Viewer Cleaning


    What is the difference in the Clean Viewer.bat and the Clean_Event_Viewer_logs.bat files that I have downloaded from Windows Ten Forums?

    I compared Clean_Event_Viewer_logs.bat from here Clear All Event Logs in Event Viewer in Windows Windows 10 Tutorials and the batch file from here Event Viewer One Click Clear - Windows 7 Help Forums (which recommends saving it as "Clean Viewer.bat") and they are identical.

    Could not find any "Clean Viewer.bat" on tenforums - where did you see it?

    Thanks Ix07. I probably downloaded it back in the Windows 7 days. I guess I save too much. I will delete the Clean Viewer. bat.

    Hey Guys,

    The two .bat files perform the same thing, but the one at Ten Forums below has been updated to include a check to verify if it's running as administrator or not.

    To me cleaning the Event Viewer is maintenance. That's why I posted it here. If I knew that I downloaded it from Tutorials, I would have posted it there.

    I just use this. It's the script compiled as an executable. It's unsigned.

    As a matter of interest, what BAT compiler do you use? I can't find one that *doesn't* trigger all sorts of false positives on VirusTotal. (AV heuristics these days just seems to be a euphemism for "we have no idea".)
