Event Viewer crashes when you open a large event log file and sort log entries by one column on a Windows Vista-based or Windows Server 2008-based computer

Consider the following scenario:

  • You open a saved event log file in Event Viewer on a computer that runs Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • The log file is very large. For example, the file is larger than 2 megabytes.
  • You sort log entries by clicking the header of a column.

In this scenario, an exception occurs and Event Viewer crashes. This problem is more likely to occur when you click a column header multiple times in a quick succession.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
