Spunk was operating extremely slow this morning. I then restarted it via the web console however it stalled in that process. I looked the the services.msc and saw that the splunkd service was not running. I tried to start it from there with no luck (error: The Splunkd service on local computer started and then stopped...) When I try to start manually from command line I get the following.
"C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin>splunk start
Splunk> Finding your faults, just like mom.

Checking configuration... Done.

Couldn't open log file configuration "C:\Program Files\Splunk\etc\log.cfg": The
