I am unable to get the service for event viewer to start.
I read somewere that the issue is within C:\windows\system32\logfiles\wmi
All I need to do is rename the RTBackup folder and I will be all set, but this is easier said then done. This is what I did to try to rename the folded: (that has a lock symbol)
I booted in to safe mode>opened cmd as admin>entered the cmd >C:\windows\system32\logfiles\wmi
then the cmd Rename RTBackup RTbackup2

When that didnt work I tried to rename the file rtbackup. Still no dice

It says Event log service is unavailable. Verify the service is running.

I needed to add system to the RTBackup with full permission and reboot the server. As soon as I rebooted all the services restarted without issue.
