A severe error occurred which has caused Advanced Audit Configuration to unload.

Input string was not in a correct format.

Anyone have any ideas?

    Hi estinson,

    Thank you for posting in the Q&A Forums.

    To resolve this issue, you can follow these steps:

    Reset Advanced Audit Policies:

    • Open Command Prompt as an administrator.
      • Enter the following command to reset the advanced audit policies:
            shell复制代码
            auditpol /clear /y
      
      Check and Fix Group Policy Settings:
      - Open the Group Policy Editor (run `gpedit.msc`).
      
         - Navigate to `Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Advanced Audit Policy Configuration`.
      
            - Check each policy setting to ensure all settings are correctly formatted. If unsure about a particular setting, you can reset it to its default value.
      
            **Delete and Reapply Group Policy Object (GPO)**:
      
               - Sometimes deleting the current Group Policy Object and creating a new one can resolve the issue.
      
                  - Open the Group Policy Management Console (run `gpmc.msc`).
      
                     - Locate and delete the problematic Group Policy Object.
      
                        - Create a new Group Policy Object and reapply the necessary advanced audit policies.
      
                        **Check System Logs**:
      
                           - Review the system logs in the Event Viewer to gather more information about the error.
      
                              - Open the Event Viewer (run `eventvwr.msc`).
      
                                 - Navigate to `Windows Logs -> Security` and look for error entries related to advanced audit policies.
      

    Ensure System Updates:

    • Make sure your operating system has the latest updates and patches installed, as these updates might include fixes for issues related to advanced audit policies.

    Best regards
