Hyper-V-VmSwitch flooding Event Log RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hyper-V is flooding my Event Log with the following message. About 10 events per minute, 43,000 in 7 days.  

    I'm not using Hyper-V, I know it is used by Core Isolation / Memory integrity, but that is turned off on my system. Suggestions?

    1. If we not use Hyper-V, please try to uninstall Hyper V and then reboot the server, check if it could work.

    2. Please run sfc /scannow on the Server, check if there's any corrupted system files.

    3. Please also check if there's any anti-virus application running on the server, if yes, please uninstall it.

    Thanks for your time!

    Best Regards,
