Windows 7: "Cannot create file C:\Windows\System32\wbem\Logs\wbemess.log"

18 Jun 2018   #1

Windows 7 pro 32 bit
"Cannot create file C:\Windows\System32\wbem\Logs\wbemess.log"

I have a computer that is having issues where I get a pop up each time a log in that says "Cannot create file C:\Windows\System32\wbem\Logs\wbemess.log". I have followed the file path tried renaming the "logs" folder to "Logs old" Also tried deleting "logs" folder. There was no change. When going into the "Logs" folder there is no "wbemess.log" that I can delete. I had a similar post before, but got that one solved. Would really appreciate any help with this.

Thanks in advance.

Hi anonomousity,

Is this a similar problem that you had here: Cannot create directory C:\Windows\LastGood windows 7 32 bit

If so, you never posted how you resolved that issue!

I hope this helps!
