Answer
This issue can appear either right after the NetWrix Account Lockout Examiner installation, or after the NetWrix Account Lockout Examiner Service restart. The program is referring to the event logs created earlier, before the installation or restart, and fails to complete reading the logs. To fix the issue, do the following:
  1. Open Registry Editor: navigate to Start - Run, enter regedit  and click OK.
  2. In the left pane, navigate to HKLM \Software\[Wow6432Node]\NetWrix\Account Lockout Examiner. The step Wow6432Node is only applied to x64 OS. 
  3. In the right pane, double-click readLog, specify 0 in the Value data field and click OK.  
  4. In NetWrix Account Lockout Examiner Console main menu bar, navigate to File - Settings and click OK to apply registry changes.
