Windows XP: Event Viewer won't log new events in SYSTEM category
Posted on 2014-03-02
I am in the midst of a new installation of Windows XP pro.
About 16 hours ago, event viewer stopped logging events in the SYSTEM category. It still logs current events in the APPLICATION category. I can not restart the Event Log service--the restart command is not enabled (should it be?) At about the same time my events stopped logging, my windows updates started failing (the following updates could not be installed.) I'm thinking these are connected some way.
