    Hello, ive heard that lots of errors and warnings in the event viewer can slow down your system.

    Is this true if it is how do i get rid of the errors and warnings? even if its not true can you please tell me how to get rid of the errors/warnings my friend told me that you can just click clear? or do you have to fix them randomly?

    Heres the picture of the errors:

    The existence of entries in Event Viewer don't slow a computer down. The actual errors might.

    You don't delete them. You either resolve the underlying problem or ignore them. Try clicking the link in the details of the error / warning or do a web search for more info on it.

    If you look at the entries, you'll see the same ones repeating. You don't search for the same error 1700 times.

    How did they get there? Obviously there are problems with your system. Event Viewer is just that. A view of events that occurred on the computer. I think you're completely misunderstanding what you're looking at.

    So if you had lots of errors\warnings would you try to fix them or just leave them?

    I'd research them. I'd also evaluate my entire system. If I were experiencing problems or the research indicated that I should be concerned, I'd work to resolve the problems.

    Some errors/warnings have links in the details that point to more information. Otherwise, yes, you search the web, Microsoft, etc.

    It looks like most of the errors/warnings are network related. Are you running a web server?

    If you don't know whether or not you're running a web server, I can't help you. It's going to be next to impossible to troubleshoot your computer problems in this type of format if you have difficulty answering the most basic questions. This is one of those threads that could drag on for weeks.
