Windows 7: Event viewer troubles

Event viewer troubles

Looks like I'm in trouble, Event Viewer's not working. It gives me the message "Event Log service is unavailable. Please verify that the service is running." A google search was unsuccessful.

Hi Johnathan,

I had the samer exact problem. It seem to be a common problem. I corrected by using system restore.

When I had Vista, I had some short cuts, one was for event viewer. When I transferred to Win 7, i used WET. When i clicked on the shortcut from Windows 7, I lost all my event viewer functionality.

At that time, when I looked it up with Google, the cause of the problem, in that situation , was the deletion of system restore in the task manager. I do not understand how that could cause the problem, but that is what I found by Googling.

Based upon what I learned in this forum, possibly you can reset it in services.

I truly hope this helps.

Have you turned off any other services?

Start>right click Computer>Manage>Services

scroll down to Windows Event Log Service, set to Automatic then Start it

If dependency services are blocking start, try starting those.

If this fails, run sfc /scannow to repair or replace any damaged system files.

I tried the first and last suggestions, to no avail. What are dependency services?

Right click Windows event services, look at properties.

At this point I would run a Repair Install

If the problem remains then some setting, tweak or program is turning off the service.

It could even be a virus, which needs to be eliminated as possibility by running Avast free home boot scan, and Spybot S&D in safe mode.

Windows 7 (My Idea)
 
 

Hi there - I've got the exact same error Mr King has... No help here in this thread, or in Google, or elsewhere on this site, I've searched all over, did not find any relevant threads: I'm going to post a new thread in the "Crashes and Debugging" forum - Since this problem is in fact a "crashing" problem:

This has been happening in two separate installs of Windows 7 - One of them a "Without WAT" version I was fooling with, and the other a regular version of Windows 7 Ultimate - That one is legitimate and activated- BOTH versions are doing the exact same thing.

This in fact has JUST happened - I was trying to get to the EVENT VIEWER - I got in, and was going through the entries, when suddenly the entire Event Viewer SERVICE crashed. Restarting it is no help, it simply will not open.

The Event Gathering service, whatever system MS has shoved into Vist-Doodoo and Windows 7 to replace the "actually-working-and-easy-to-comprehend" event logging system that was in Windows XP Home/Pro/MCE and Server 2003: It is actually gathering DATA... But the system that shows the event viewer results, simply CRASHES after about three seconds of opening the Event Viewer Logs.

Thanks, I'll be over in the Crashes and Debugging area with this.

Hello,

I kind of forgot about the problem, but after I reinstalled Windows, the problem disappeared. Have you tried Greg's suggestion above, to do a Repair Install?
