    The temporary fix;
    You might try changing the file properties to "Overwrite as needed"

    Then; Control Panel|Administrative Tools|Services|Event Log Service|General,
    set the "Startup Type:" to "Disabled" restart the pc, then delete (or move)
    the corrupt *.evt file(s) from %windir%\system32\config then set the Event
    Log Service "Startup Type:" back to "Automatic", restart for effect.

    The more permanent fix;

    what if you try filtering the events to just show a certain type of error,
    does that work?
