I have multiple applications and services cluttering my Windows Application Log. For example, SanDisk SSD Dashboard Service (installed automatically through windows update) writes

SanDisk SSD Dashboard Service. Number of supported device: 2

Message mutliple times a minute.

Same with many other log sources, such as ESENT:

svchost (3332,G,0) The beta feature EseDiskFlushConsistency is enabled in ESENT due to the beta site mode settings 0x800000.

(Again multiple times a minute)

I find it unnecessary and would like to disable logging of information events altogether. (Obviously, I'm not going to chase every single program doing this).

I do not want to just filter displayed messages in the Event Viewer.

I found this: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb687437.aspx

To disable logging for a specific event
1. In the Application Center snap-in, expand the cluster node.

However, have no Application Center snap-in in my mmc.

I tried exploring Event Viewer options, but bound no relevant ones.

Tried to search for a relevant Group Policy setting, again with no success.

Is there a way of disabling logging of info level log events in Windows 10?
