Cannot read events - 1402 error

January 14, 2012 at 19:45:21
Specs: Windows 7, i5 2500/16gb
Discovered I have a long-standing problem: Cannot read event logs - get error 1402 "The instance name passed was not recognized as valid by a WMI data provider." This apparently surfaced with Vista in 2007, but I haven't read anything from MS. On MS Answers, there is a long, involved "solution" for Vista, but nothing for Win 7.

Any anyone help?

Thanks.

Solutions for Windows Vista will often work on Windows 7 too, as they have much in common.
