    Here are the steps needed to delete all events in logs for win 7,8,10.


    The following is a set of easy steps to delete all the event logs (lots of them) from win 7, 8, 8.1, 10, that I found and it works. Thus, you don't have to delete each of them one-by-one.


    Select the "command prompt (administrator).

    At the DOS prompt, paste the following command and hit carriage return. After waiting for the script to finish check the event logs to see if they are empty i.e. the custom view Administrative Events one since there is no clear log under action or right clicking on the log name. Mine showed empty for this one and others that I spot checked.


    for /f "tokens=*" %1 in ('wevtutil.exe el') do wevtutil.exe cl "%1"


    The posted topics were required and didn't match this topic under windows, and the above info applied to all windows OS' win 7 and above; however, only one can be selected for this post.

    XP/SP3 -> To Win 7 or Win 8

    I tried the windows 8 build thats available and I thought it was a step backwards from 7.

    Here are the steps needed to delete all events in logs for win 7,8,10.

    Events 4672 & 4624 Win 10 Freezes - special LOGON ?

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. Are you on a domain network?
    2. May I know the make and the model number of your system?

    The event logs you have provided seems to be the security logs that is generated when you login to your system. For more information on the event that was generated, you can check
    4672(S): Special privileges assigned to new logon.

    The Windows error logs will be located at Event Viewer > Windows Logs > System.

    Please follow the step below and check if it works for you.

    Step: Improve Windows 10 Performance.

    Try some of the following suggestions to help
    make your Windows 10 PC run better
    . The steps are listed in order, so start with the first one, see if that fixes the problem, and then continue to the next one if it doesn’t.

    Note: The last step on the article contains Windows Reset, I suggest you not to perform Windows reset, as there is a change your data and applications will be wiped and also
    the OS will reverted back to previous version you upgraded from.

    If the issue still persists, please reply to this post with more information so that we can identify the root cause of this issue and assist you further.

    Hope it helps.
