Hello sgmdew, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What issue did you have?

Did you run the .bat using Run as administrator?

After you help Brink understand the issue you are experiencing (which might help improve this tutorial) you can try an alternate method of clearing all events using powershell

Ran as admin, tried the wevtutil.exe, powershell, and all other bat files I could find but none clear my event viewer or other logs. It must be something wrong that I can't delete any of the logs information, thanks.

No the bats just don't clear the log entries.

I'm not sure why the downloaded .bat is not clearing the Event Viewer logs for you.

I just downloaded the .zip file, extracted (drag and drop) the .bat to my desktop, right clicked on the .bat, clicked on "Run as administrator", and approved.

It cleared all logs in Event Viewer minus the 5 new entries in "Windows Logs" -> "System" showing the log clear, and any new entries afterwards.

Well it is not clearing mine so was looking for something else to do; running the wevtutil cmd came up with not a valid cmd name. At a loss on how to clean the logs out other than manually but admin log still full.

I use Zardoc's original batch file compiled as an executable!
