Windows 7: Windows 7 x64 "Event Viewer has stopped working"

12 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Windows 7 x64 "Event Viewer has stopped working"

Whenever I launch Event Viewer, I get this message. Ditto when I try launching Computer Management. I sometimes get a message about Adding a snap-in to console. But it never works. I ran SFC SCANNOW and it fix some stuff requiring a restart and is running clean now. No improvement.

I tried going back to an image from several weeks ago. Event Viewer worked but when I ran SFC SCANNOW and restarted, it stopped working again. If I run mmc.exe, I get a single folder Console Root. Trying to launch Event Viewer from the File menu crashes it. Running services the same way works. Running Component Management crashes.

Any ideas?

Check your system for BUGS. It is infected. That or the hard drive is corrupted and starting to fail.

These things don't Just Happen. Windows 7 is a very good operating system and does not have these problems unless something causes them.

I had a similar problem in the past:

Event Viewer Error: MMC could not create the snap-in

Have you been using any Tuneup, Speedup, Optimize or registry programs?
Please list them. Also if you could list all the anti virus programs and the like you are using.
