  2. Getting access denied error message when trying to clear the event viewer logs

    Original title: event view log LIVELD

    When I clear event viewer manually going through the logs that have entries I can clear them all except for liveld. I keep getting error access denied.

    Windows 10 File Explorer not working

    Have you tried using Event Viewer? Try to open File Explorer, note the time you try to open it, and then look for an event under Event Viewer "applications". There should be an event for that time plus an "information" entry.

    Appreciate the post. I had been using that bat file in Windows 7 but it does not seem to work in Windows 10. It seems to run, but the entries remain undeleted.
