    huge event log ,how can i fix it?


    hi
    from yesterday at every boot , i notice that my event log does grow up steadily

    and i haven't installed any software

    myevengviewer freezes , on microsoft even viewer i can see it's the security that increase of 32.000 very quickly , and the file security is around 21mb in c:\Windows\system32\winevt\Logs\

    i have tried cmd as adminsitrator SFC /verifyonly & /scanow without any error
    i tried DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth & Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

    nothing , no errors , my only software running is eset smart security updated

    MyEventViewer.exe freezes tring to loading the event log


    have you such issues ? have you found a fix?
    i have even run as administrator Clear_Event_Viewer_Logs.bat
    for /F "tokens=*" %%a in ('wevtutil.exe el') DO wevtutil.exe cl "%%a"

    Try this:

    1. Go to Search, type powershell, right click on PowerShell and choose Run as administrator
    2. Enter the following line into PowerShell and press Enter:
      • wevtutil el | Foreach-Object {wevtutil cl $_}
      • This did not remove all but some.

    I would start off by clearing your event logs with Brink`s tutorial, I`d post it but particular tutorials are somewhat hard to find here :)
