Log File Size has been Exceeded error

    Using Windows XP MCE on an HP Pavilion a1330n

    I have been getting a popup error when doing various things such as reading
    newsgroups, browsing the internet (using IE 7), restarting the computer, and
    just about any other process. It's pretty random.

    What the popup error says is

    "Error-Logfile size has been exceeded. Login process has been terminated"

    I have tried clearing the Event Viewer events in each log, and setting them
    to overwrite as needed, but the error persists. Any ideas?

    If any more info is needed, just ask and I will try to provide it.

    search for *.log and delete a large one :) - unless you read log
    files, they are of no use, if you do they can tell a lot.

    Google: Process Explorer
    Run PE, when the pop up shows PE will have a red process, double click
    on that process and see what it's related to.

    why? Guest

    The title bar of the popup is?

    So you can login okay?
    But are the logs filling up? You didn't say that before clearing the
    logs any entries matched the message / date time?

    You need help but left a lot out.

    What apps with logs files do you have running?

    What files did you find in a search with date/time as the popup?
    Do you want the answer in 24hshd, or not? Are you following both 24HSHD
    and the post you made in

    So what? I've posted both in newsgroups and on websites looking for
    something. Never hurts to cover as many bases as you can.

    Robin is also giving feed back there as well, only one suggestion was
    given and it's a duck hunt.

    Start | Run <type in>

    File/Option, Diskclean up

    Would of been the correct answer in that thread.

    But the likely hood of Robin ever seeing that application is slimmm,
    let alone starting a log.

    Not sure what you mean. In any case, try to keep your file name sizes as
    small as possible.

    There are more responses from OP in the other places since the 24HSHD
    post. So is the OP keeping track of all the threads?

    Sorry it has taken so long to reply. I have been visiting relatives.
    Anyway...here is your answers:

    TBH, I can't tell you if the logs are filling up because I don't know what
    files they are for.
    I apologize. Please tell me what else you need and I will try to provide it.
    I don't have any. Unless Windows has logs files that I can't see. Tell me
    how to check for that and I wll do it.
    Should I search using the word "error"? Or what should I use for a search
    term? Or tell me how to search using just time/date.
    Yes. I want the answer. I posted to as many "on-topic" groups as I could
    fine. Hoping one or more answers would be the right one. Thank you for
    searching for me.

    I don't believe I have created any new files with long names. And, if so,
    how would I be able to tell if it is a "too long" name? Are there

    Thank you

    Oops, I forgot to answer one :)

    If by login you mean restart my computer, yes. With no issues at all. I do
    not have seperate logins set up. Just me using the computer so no need for

    why? Guest

    Gives a bit different lot of search results from www.google.com
    Talking about the Windows Event Viewer here, you said you cleared
    events. So is there an event in there saying a log file has filled up?

    Should have said, doing a search from Windows Explorer, and sort by

    or even any of the directory / file monitoring apps found at

    Ok, here are the errors that I see in Event Viewer:

    In "Applications" : 12/16/2007 1:01:03am: Hanging Application ISUSPM.exe.
    version 3.10.100 hang module hungapp version

    And that is the only error in the Event Viewer. There are a few Warnings in
    the System Event Viewer, if you want me to post those also?
    I will have to download one of them and do a search next time the error
    occurs. Thanks for the links. And the help.

    It's really not the long file names that "may" cause "problems". It's
    that often from many sites there are "illegal" characters in the file

    Just wanted to post to let everyone that tried to help me know that I have
    figured out what the error was about.

    Seems I have RivaTuner set to stop logging when the file size exeeds 10MB.
    Evidentally it also gives a warning when that happens. I knew about the
    setting, but I didn't know that it would cause a warning to popup.

    Thanks again for all the help :)
