When a successful logon has occurred on Windows, the operating system triggers event ID 4624 (Logon ID 0x3e7). Hence, it is normal to see this ID in Windows Event Viewer. Services like Server service, Winlogon.exe, Services.exe, DHCP Client, DNS Client, etc may generate it. However, some users have complained of several log entries of event ID 4624 (logon ID 0x3e7).
If you also get several log entries for this event, then it may no longer be a normal occurrence, and you will need to check it out and fix it. A virus may trigger these several occurrences, and the messages often interrupt user activity. In this guide, we show you how to fix it.
1. Restart the Windows Event Log Service
When you restart the Event Log on Windows 11, it clears out all pending events not yet written on the log file. This way, the Event Log is not overwhelmed with data.

2. Fix System File Corruption Using the SFC Scan
The System File Checker (SFC) is a command line utility that scans the computer for corrupted or missing file system.

Step 3: Follow any prompts on the terminal to complete the scan, then restart your computer.
