So a while ago I entered my event viewer on windows 10 and I noticed a bunch of weird entries. They look like they where written in English but with the use of Cyrillic and Greek alphabets. I am running a windows 10 install since the start of the free upgrade.

Has any of you had this experience? Can any of you tell me what it is?

    Can you copy-paste any of the event log folder names and log names into a comment please? Makes it easier for us to search. – Polynomial Mar 12 at 22:23
  • Run PowerShell, use output from (Get-WinEvent -ListLog * -EA 0).Logname for (partial) Copy&Paste. – JosefZ Mar 14 at 16:37
