    Kernel Event Tracing Warning ID 4 and Error ID 3?


    "The maximum file size for session "Circular Kernel Context Logger" has been reached. As a result, events might be lost (not logged) to file "C:\Windows\system32\WDI\LogFiles\BootCKCL.etl". The maximum files size is currently set to 104857600 bytes."

    "Session "Circular Kernel Context Logger" stopped due to the following error: 0xC0000188"

    These two messages went away for awhile and now the're are back. Has somebody figured out how to make them go away? I don't think I did anything with tracing to make this happen?! I know I should make a pledge to never look at the Event Log but...every once in awhile I uncover something that can be fixed. I have Googled the messages but don't seem to be able to find any real solution. I tried deleting the .etl file but it fills up on the next boot. Help would be appreciated.

    Getting lots of input on this one!

    Since I have been having all kinds of weird stuff happening since I installed W8.1 Update 1 on this ASRock Z77 OC Formula/3770K system I have been making a backup of the system almost twice daily. So...when the Event Log 3 and 4 reappeared I went back a couple of days and restored the system to before the "3 and 4" Event Logs appeared and all is well again. About the only thing that I can find that I did to the system to cause the problem to reappear was:

    1. Installed Auslogics Defrag Program.
    2. Uninstalled the Auslogics "gift" called MyPcBackup.
    3. Update Auslogics Defrag program to the latest version.
    4. Re-Installed Acronis TI 2014 Build 6673.

    It's been several days and the Event Log 3 and 4 have not reappeared. I will not re-install the above stuff! However, I'm not really sure that is what created the problem but then I've given in to "if something gets in your way go around it".
