  • Hi Arun,

    For the error message you received, please navigate to the following registry:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ MMC \ SnapIns \ FX:{b05566ad-fe9c-4363-BE05-7a4cbb7cb510}

    Then on the right side, check the RuntimeVersion, if its version number is v2.0.40607, change it to v2.0.50727.

    See if the Event Viewer would work;

    The next way (If changing the RuntimeVersion not work here ) is to export the above registry, then delete it.

    Best regards

  • Hi,

    Any specific symptom we have encountered like Blue screen when the suddenly restart occurred?

    Please take a look at the following folder Windows%SystemRoot%\Minidump, check if there are any dump files saved there. If any, please upload it(them) into OneDrive and then post the shared link here.

    For the error "MMC could not create the Snap-in The Snap-in might not have been installed correctly. "Here is a similar thread for reference:

    MMC could not create the snap-in Event Viewer

    Please take a try with the methods suggested by the folks in the above thread and see if it could be solved.

    Best regards

  • Hi Michael,

    Its strange, There is no MiniDump folder in that PC.
    I have got a new CLSID while opening Event viewer, where i could not find this anywhere in the forums.



    Kind Regards,
