If you have a lot of entries in the event logs, depending on your system, it can take a bit to open the logs. Here is a way to clear all the 4 main event logs quickly.
Open a text editor (e.g. notepad), and copy the following into it.
@cls @echo on wevtutil.exe cl Application wevtutil.exe cl Security wevtutil.exe cl Setup wevtutil.exe cl System @echo off pause
Save it as "clear_logs.bat" (no quotes). Now, just double click on the file, and all 4 main logs will be cleared. It will not work on Windows XP.
This will work on Windows 8.1 for sure. It should work on Windows 8, 7, maybe Vista.
Have a great day!
