Event Log file corrupted

Dear all experts,

  When I'm going to open a security log, it returns "The event log file is corrupted".  Can anyone tell me how do I fixed this?  I'm using Windows 2000 Server Professional / SP4.  The file size is 3648KB.

Regards

No problem.

1)  Stop the Event Log Service.  Set the startup options for it to Disabled.
2)  Reboot your server - ignore all the errors and warnings you get - the Disabled Event Log service will cause them.
3)  Search for and move/delete all your .evt files - or just the Security one if you desire.
4)  Go back into Services and set the startup options for the Event Log Service back to Automatic.
5)  Reboot the server.

You should be good to go.
