    Deleting All Event Logs


    I know that the event logs are stored here:

    Can you just delete the logs that are present in this folder? Or do you have to do it another way so Windows 10 doesn't error out?

    :)

    Event Error Log

    Windows 10 Event Error Log - Summary Section

    One of the Logs listed needs to be deleted since this application has been removed from my laptop. Is there anyway to remove it from the Log -Summary Section?

    Cant Delete event log file

    Hi

    I've been trying to delete appsanywhere so that I can reinstall it however it won't give me the option to reinstall. I think that this is because there are still two files from the software on my PC. These files are

    "AppsAnywhereExternalUpdater.evtx"

    "S2AppsAnywhere.evtx"

    I've tried deleting them but it says "The action can't be completed because the file is open in windows event log"

    So I deleted all of my event log files and it still says that its open in the event log even though there is nothing in my event log viewer. The only reason I know that its still on my PC is because I'm running a search everything app.

    Please tell me how to delete these files because everything I've tried hasn't worked Deleting All Event Logs :(

    (Also I don't know too much about event log files and stuff so please be super obvious in your response)

    Thank you
