Windows 7: Event Viewer Chrashes browsing Event Logs

Windows 7 (My Idea)
 
 
Event Viewer Chrashes browsing Event Logs

Someone else actually had a similar problem last December (2009):

Event viewer troubles

I'm going to post a new thread here in the "Crashes and Debugging" forum - Since this problem is in fact a sort of "crashing" issue.



This has been happening in two separate installs of Windows 7 - One of them a "Without WAT" version I was fooling with: When this problem occurred using the version "Without WAT" I just assumed that since that OS had a lot of stuff forcibly removed, then that particular glitch was not anything unusual. But then I installed a legit version of Windows 7 Ultimate- And activated it... And whip pizz boo dang gilg foof, it did the same thing... Immediately! I installed this, FRESH, at about 2:00 pm today, and one of the first things I did was I had to go into Event Viewer to get some info - This in fact has JUST happened - I got in, and was going through the entries, when suddenly the entire Event Viewer SERVICE crashed. Restarting the service is no help, it simply will not open, well right away any-how. Sometimes, you can wait a little while, and go in there again, and the service will actually be running and will let you in, but then it crashes again.

The Event Gathering service MS has shoved into Vist-Poop and Windows 7 to replace the Windows XP "actually-working" and easy-to-comprehend event logging system... is actually gathering DATA... But the system that shows the event viewer results, simply CRASHES after about three seconds of opening the Event Viewer.

That this happened first with a copy of Windows 7 from a bad source... And THEN from a bright shiny store bought disk that had Microsoft printed all over it, makes me think that it is possibly my system configuration that may have something to do with it, so here are my Specs:

The System is installed on both Disks, I had run the Without WAT version on the 500 GB Drive, and I have the "Real" version on the 320 GB Drive.

In searching this, I did find an alleged Microsoft "Hotfix" - But it was made for WIndows Vista- And the page I saw that on, did not have as valid LINK - Maybe someone here knows the Hotfix I'm talking about and post the link, TIA.

Oh yes, and please don't get ballistic because I mentioned "Without WAT" - I am not endorsing that, only showing that I had the exact same error in two different versions of Windows 7. Thanks!
