Event Viewer Problems


Hi everyone,
I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit edition. My problem that I have been having is with event viewer. When I open it I get the familiar prompt from UAC telling me whether to continue or cancel. I hit continue and event viewer opens fine but it doesn't display any events or logs. I then get an error message that says MMC (Microsoft Management Console) has detected an error in a snap-in and will unload it. Then my options are to report this error to microsoft and shutdown MMC or to unload the snap-in and continue running event viewer. If I report the error to microsoft it just closes event viewer. If I choose to unload the snap-in then the error message window closes and I get another error message that says:

Snap-in unavailable. This snap-in has performed a non-valid operation and has been unloaded. To continue worknig with this snap-in restart MMC or try loading this snap-in again.

I have already ran sfc /scannow and I ran chkdsk which didn't make any difference. I booted from the windows CD and went to command prompt to see if I could run chkdsk /r but I got an error message that said windows can't check the disk because the drive is write protected. I am trying to avoid doing a repair install to fix this issue so is there anyway I can fix problem without doing a repair install? Any help would be appreciated.

As an update I tried Last Known Good Configuration and Safe Mode. I still got the same error message with event viewer while in safe mode. I am all out of ideas. Please help.

I googled my problem that I have been having and I got alot of hits. A lot of people are having this same problem but there are no solutions. On my computer I have opened all of the other administrative tools without any problems and they work fine. It seems that I am getting this error only in event viewer. So can somone please tell me how I can get event viewer to run again.

Just a shot in the dark, but since the other tools work fine, I'd suggest trying to find a copy of eventvwr.msc and replace your current one with it.

Thanks for you reply usasma. I just wanted to let you know that I got my issue resolved by doing a repair install with the Windows Vista DVD. I made another thread where this topic was continued because no one replied to this thread. http://windowsbbs.com/showthread.php?t=64013 That link is where this topic continued.
