On a windows 2k8R2 server the eventlog service wont start. When i try to start the service the machine returns:
“Windows could not start the Windows Event Log service on Local Computer. Error 13: The data is invalid.”
Event viewer won’t open either.
obviously, i don’t have an event log for this error.
i’ve already tried clearing the event logs. that didnt do anything.
go to regedit.exe
Delete the EventLog container
After that restart server.
