Yes I have the same exact problem. I have ranted enough, or maybe not
Under Error 4201 post. This is the same issue.. out of the blue Event Log
service will not start and config tab is grayed out!! Not one single blurb
on MS Support site and this has been an issue since Feb. 2007. I find so
many posts with this exact problem but no resolution or explination.. The
fact that MS won't even acknowledge the issue means they are flipping scared
clueless script kitties that don't know what they he** they have released.
Post this issue as many places as you can... too many folks have just said
screw it and either disable Event log service and purchase third party
logging or they wipe and reload... Incidently when you wipe and reload the
problem does come back after a few weeks!!! "System restore does not work"
Please post if you get an answer or a fix. Thanks!!
