    Upgraded to 8.1 and got new event log error?


    I think I got this Event Log error after I upgraded to 8.1 but I' not sure. Anyway, when I go to event viewer I get a message that says "One or more logs in the query have errors" and then is says the Log that it cannot find is "Microsoft-Windows-DxpTaskRingtone/Analytic". I have looked and the log does not exist and OF COURSE when I try to cheat the system and create the log it does not like the "/" in the name! Any ideas on what the heck is going on and how I can tell W8.1 to create the log would be appreciated.

    nope ,not me ,works fine for me ,i updated to 8.1 the other day .if you backup the registry and delete the address suggested in the sites listed in this thread you should be ok
    or you could try System file checker it might fix it
    open elevated command prompt and run, sfc /scannow

    I don't have the problem either. I did a clean install from an ISO.
