    thousands of security logs in event viewer


    I went to the Event Viewer to check why my system shut down and won't turn on for a few minutes after the shut down. Then I noticed that under "Windows Logs" >"Security", I have more than 10,000 "Audit Success" logs. more than 10 per second.
    Is this normal?

    EventID are mostly 5379 and 4798.

    The Windows installation is clean, using the 20H2 Media Creation Tools from Microsoft website

    Thanks

    :)

    As you have mentioned, you have performed a repair installation on the computer and you see Event 508, 510 and 533 in Event Viewer.

    1. Press Windows + X from the keyboard, select
      Event Viewer.
    2. Expand Windows Logs from the left pane and select
      Applications.
    3. Click Filter Current Log from extreme right pane. Then in the new windows check the box beside

    Clear All Event Logs in Event Viewer in Windows  


    FWIW CCleaner will clear the Event Viewer Logs - just check the box under Windows>Advanced>Windows Events Logs. run CCleaner and it's that simple. Much faster than most ,bat files I've tried. Just a suggestion.

    thousands of security logs in event viewer

    No log file locations in Event Viewer

    I opened Win 10's Event Viewer (first as myself, second as Administrator) and tried to create a Custom View.

    I chose reporting By Log, but when I clicked on the drop-down menu for log locations, none were listed.

    What gives?
