    Hi, This problem occurs either in one or both of the following cases:

    • Once or more dependencies of event viewer are missing.
    • Event Viewer Service has been stopped.


    To fix the first one, You need to repair your copy of windows XP through installation disk. Here are the steps:

    1. Insert the Windows XP installation disk in the CD ROM.
    2. Boot UP from the CD ROM.
    3. Then after loading the OS, Windows setup will ask you if you want to repair any previous installation of windows.
    4. Select that option to repair it.

    To fix the second issue:

    1. Got to Start > Run > type "services.msc" & hit enter.
    2. Locate the Event Viewer Service.
    3. Double click on the service, Then click on start.
    4. Also, select its startup to automatic.


    Your issue should be resolved now. Good luck.

    Dear friend,

    This may happen due to the one of the following questions:-

    1. You may have the recycler.in virus
    2. The administrator settings may be changed.
    3. The disk clean up tool must have the wrong config settings.
    4. In the options menu, choose "Enable Hash files".

    Hope this info was useful to you
