SYMPTOMS

On a Windows Server 2008-based computer, the Event Log service may stop responding (hang) because of a deadlock. This deadlock may occur if a remote event subscription is disconnected from the Windows Server 2008-based computer while a client computer is delivering events.

Because of this issue, any applications that use the Event Log service to access event logs may stop responding.
