Can not see entries in Application Log in Event Viewer

view full story

http://serverfault.com – Last week our Application Log appeared to be corrupt. Event Viewer said the log was 20MB, and had 18,446,744,073,709,550,735 (0.000000000008674 bits each) records (which can not possibly be true), and mmc would crash whenever we tried to view the log. We cleared the Application log, and it appears to be logging data because when we go to the Windows Logs section in mmc, it says the Application Log has 1,985 events (in 3MB), but when we actually click on the log to open it, it says there are zero events. I have made sure that all filtering is off. Any ideas? (HowTos)
