Windows 10 – High CPU Usage with EvntAgnt Warning Event ID 3007 in Event Log

Today I've noticed my PC behaving oddly. CPU was high with Windows Event Log taking a lot of my CPU resources. Seemed weird at first. I've disabled all forwarders from Domain Controllers to see if something went wrong during my development but nothing changed. I then checked Resource Monitor and noticed High Disk Writes to Application Log. Which finally led me to this little error… well sort of 20MB of Warnings for EvntAgnt with Event ID 3007 going around in loops.

Short description of problem

With Event Description

This seems to happen on Windows 10 Enterprise – 10.0.17713 Build 17713 (Insiders) release. Not sure if it happens on any other version.

How do I get rid of it?

Solution, weirdly enough is to disable SNMP Service. So just go to services.msc, find SNMP Service, then stop it, and finally disable it.

This solved my issue. Why does this happen? I don't know. I do know I'm using Insider version of Windows 10 so I have to expect bugs like this. Hope it helps :-)
