Description
eXclaimer was unable to open the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\\Tuesday 19 May 2009.txt in thread 10476. The file was locked for an unacceptable period of time.
Comments
 
From eXclaimer Knowledgebase: This error is generated if Exclaimer cannot open it's log file for output. This may be generated if some other process has the file open already, such as Word. It may also be caused by a folder permissions problem. Under these circumstances, Exclaimer logging was disabled. See EV100123.

Some other posts suggest restarting the system in order to clear the lock.
