    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 Windows 8.1 to create the log would be appreciated.

    hi, i found a site with the same error,just they are updating there windows 2012 r2
    they give info on a fix by edit to the registry . info on where to find it in the registry is a little different but i found it in my registry at the address below ,as it says on the site be sure to backup registry if you do choose to try the fix , good luck

    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.
