Event Viewer Error: MMC could not create the snap-in
I received the ff. error when I ran event viewer:

MMC could not create the snap-in.

MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have installed correctly.

Name: Event Viewer

CLSID: FIX:{b05566ad-fe9c-4363-be05-7a4cbb7cb510}

So far, I tried sfc /scannow and will be attaching the cbs.log zipped to this message.

I also tried a system restore to a point yesterday.

Finally, I created a new user, logged in, and accessed the event viewer.

By the way, I just noted that I am experiencing the same problems with the task scheduler:

MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have installed correctly.

Name: Task Scheduler

CLSID: FX{c7b8fb06-bfe1-4c2e-9217-7a69a95bbac4}

Thank you for any help!
