in the Application Log subdirectory of my event viewer there are 3,188
events but they're invisible. When I select one and right click for
properties it says: "No properties are available on this object." The system
log is fine. I'm stumped by this, anybody have any idea?

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;

and possibly
