Windows 10 filling HDD with error logs

Since some recent update, my installation of Windows 10 has started filling my SSD with gigabytes of event files in the C:\Windows\Temp Folder. I've attached one set of them below as all of them seem to be pretty close to identical. A new set of these three files is created every ~3seconds. :/

 

I assume this is some updating process (Looks like Windows Xbox game overlay?) going rogue and constantly trying to fix some update that hasn't applied properly, however I have no clue how to stop it.  

 

Some help would be really nice because I know this isn't good for the health of my SSD (constant writes at 2.1MB/s according to Task Manager), and it's just annoying.

Cheers.

Can you stop the service from running using task schedueler?

 

Also have you tried using SFC or DISM?

 

The commands for both are:

 

sfc /scannow 

 

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth 

 

Both of those need to be run in an admin command prompt.

Thanks. DISM seems to have done the trick for now.

 

Thanks!

UPDATE: It only took 5 minutes for it to start up again.

The process writing the logs to disk is the "Windows Event Log", which appears to only write error logs for other processes.

 

I'm not sure what task or service is being run that is causing these logs to be written.
