Clear Event Logs with PowerShell

Ever needed to clear all events from each of the 1100+ Event Viewer logs on a Windows workstation?

From an elevated PowerShell console, run the following script to clear the event logs in Event Viewer…

wevtutil el | Foreach-Object {wevtutil cl "$_"}

 

Good luck.
