Event Viewer does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I click on Event Viewer in Computer Management I receive this error:

    "Event log service is unavailable. Verify that the service is running."

    I tried to start this service in Services, but couldn't find it. It is not in the list.

    How do I fix this? It was working before, why did this happen?

  • Windows Event Log has no direct dependencies, but missing or corrupt system files can cause such behavior. Thus, I'd start by running System File Checker and seeing what it can correct.

    Hope this helps please report back on what you find :)
