How do you clear event logs? (solved)

#1 Post by cadillacmike68 » Thu Jul 28, 2016 8:31 pm

My event logs have between 10,000 and 30,00 entries in them. MUCH of this is from the 5 months of BSODs that I was getting courtesy of Acronis TI 11 which I have subsequently eradicated, but the logs are bursting and I'd like to clear them.

In Control Panel/Admin Tools/Event Viewer, click on Windows Logs/Application
Then click on Action (at the top) and select Clear Log...
Or click on Clear Log... under Actions on the right side of the log-entries.
Repeat for the other logs.
