Corrupted security event logs issue (OpC30-154)


We have windows 2003 x64 Ent and we always get this error message (everyday)

"The Windows Event Log 'SECURITY' could not be read, because it is corrupt. Please clean the corrupted Windows Event Log as described in the Microsoft article Q172156 and restart the agent. Supressing further error messages. System Error Number: 1500 (5dc) - The event log file is corrupted. (OpC30-154)"

We've tried the MS Q172156 article but did not work for this server.

Current workaround is to rename/backup the security event log and then clear the log.

This only happens for security events application and system does not any issue.
