Windows 7: Event Viewer warnings

Event Viewer warnings

Using Event Viewer/Applications I was getting 5 error events each day. This had to do with a "search" for a file on an external HD. I have just formated the HD and now I get "Warnings" about the the same files. The HD is now blank.

How do I get rid of the warnings?

Thanks for any help.

I've been clearing out my Event Viewer using a batch file I found a good 18 months ago. Gives you a clean slate to look at. I can't remember where I found the batch file but this one is (nearly) the same. They don't delete the actual .event files, just clear your event viewer.

I feel that this is not what you are really looking for though. You are looking for how to fix it so you no longer get the error messages

Lasy B - Thanks for the reply. You are correct in that I would rather know how to "fix the problem", but if nothing else I'll give your suggestion a try.

Thanks again

This may be interesting reading. It adresses Vista but should be the same for Win7: Working with Vista’s new Event Viewer

As far as I know, I'm not having any problems with keyboard but there must be a problem somewhere to cause all these events. I've cleared the Viewer a couple times for other reasons so don't know how far back this keyboard issue goes but am sure it's been at least 5 months, if not the whole...

Problems with random 'Server Not Found' errors & event viewer warnings
