    When I start MS build-in Event Viewer, then go to Custom Views--->Adminstrative Events and right click and select "Properties" then all the parameters are disabled resp. read-only.
    See attached snapshot

    Why?

    As far as I remember they were editable in the past. I could (de-)select e.g. "Warnings" checkbox.
    Recently I wiped all event logs by the often recommended command

    wevtutil.exe

    It worked. But it could have the side effect that now all the existing customs views are not editable again.
    On other computers they are! And I can create new custom views which are editable as well.

    But how can I make the existing customs view editable back again?
