  • Use sysinternals tools for analysis. Start with process monitor and explorer. Also refer to older articles in windowsitpro.com from M.Morales.

  • Hi,

    I agree with Milos that you can install Process Monitor to find the root reason for this issue:


    In addition, it may caused by some corrupt event logs, please make sure you have applied the Maximum log size setting for event logs appropriately.
    Best regards,
