Event Viewer Problems

First Ensure the Event Viewer Service Is started, Click Start > Run > Services.msc {enter} if its running or not do the following, if it is running set the startup type to disabled then reboot and do the following.

1. Do a search on the system for .evt files Then Delete them all (Don't worry) they are recreated when you reboot, if you feel nervous about deleting them move them into a folder. Usually the Event viewer service WONT start because of a corrupt .evt file. Then Reboot. And restart the Event Log Service

2. If it still isn't working you probably have a missing value from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog You can go To a working system and copy the attributed of this key to your defective system.
