    HI,
    It is reporting that one of the log files is corrupt on start up?
    I beleive to fix this issue you first need to disable this program and delete Appevent.evt, Secevent.evt, and/or Sysevent.evt, from %SystemRoot%\System32\Config (or wherever they may be)? So I discovered on a web site. Or can you advise more?
    Thanks..

    No you just need to delete the log file is all. Open the Administrative Tools folder, then the Events Viewer, right click on the corrupt log (probably system or applications) and select "clear". I encounter this all too often myself.

    You're most welcome. It's just one of those things you learn by poking around with the right click menus on various items.
