Alert Viewer Not Responding Windows 10 Windows 11

Just do something about alert viewer crap. Blank white box in right corner pops up & keep looking at me for a while, after that shows coding text which i think you guys also not able to understand? ( Tht's the only reason this nonsense of alertviewer.exe is still not fixed inspite of hundreds of users having same issue across all windows, 10 11 whtever)

After program not responding hang it (box) freezes screen & force close it.

Very irritating & annoying.

Hi I'm not sure your response to ASUSROG answers his issue (which I also suffer from). The problem is that the Alert Viewer box appears but fails and dispalys a debug error. In addition (for me) the process then loops and kills the PC -it takes all the memory and cpu. I have to then repeatedly attempt to click and drag the box in order to get it to display the message bar at the top of the box showing "Alert Viewer Not Responding" in order to then click on the red X in the corner. A message is then displayed asking if I want to end the process. Clicking on this then gets rid of the alert viewer box and gradually the memory and cpu are released. This happens multiple times a day and is deeply annoying! For info, I have the boxes in settings ticked as per your suggestion. Anything you can suggest to stop the alerrt viewer from filing ould be wonderful.

The quantity of code needed in DevOps depends on the jobs and projects. While coding is crucial, DevOps includes automation, collaboration, and continuous integration. DevOps requires basic scripting to intermediate programming skills, depending on the organization's needs and project complexity.

I have 5 different PC/laptops with different Windows OS (10 Home, 10 Pro, 11 Home, 11 Pro) on them, and after the latest McAfee "update" they all are having this issue! And seems like McAfee doesn't listen or care, because customers were having this issue since 2022!
