Event Viewer cannot open the event log or custom view. Verify that Event Log service is running or query is too long.



How do you delete the Event Viewer Entry Log in Windows 10? I am getting an error that says "Event Viewer cannot open the event log or custom view. Verify that Event Log service is running or query is too long. The specifed channel path is invalid (15000).

I created an Application Event Viewer Log with an "&" sign and now the Event Log won't be opened or application won't log new Entry to the log file.
