    Vista Event Viewer


    When opening the Event Viewer I discovered there were NO logs. Instead I
    received a message that MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might
    not have been installed correctly.

    This is a 7 month old eMachine and I have no idea how to install the
    snap-in. I can't even find out where to check to see if it's enabled or
    disabled per the Help File.

    What can I do to get my Event Viewer to work properly.

    Thanks.

    RE: Vista Event Viewer


    Thanks for the response. I have already been to the TechNet board and was
    going back there to try and post a message. One of the posts in that thread
    had the very same error message that I did. The bad thing is that I can NOT
    rename the MMC.exe file. Vista just won't let me.

    Isn't it strange that this seems to be a Microsoft issue and yet there is no
    documentation or fix on their web site?

    It seems that several people have had this problem and were able to overcome
    it and I can't even rename a silly file? My Task Scheduler has the same
    error message. I didn't even know that until I read someone's post and
    checked mine out.

    I will check out the other link you sent.

    Thanks again and if you have any other ideas I would appreciate hearing
    about them.
