PowerShell 2.0: One Cmdlet at a Time 99 Unregister-Event

Continuing the series looking at new cmdlets available in PowerShell 2.0. This time we look at the Unregister-Event cmdlet.

What can I do with it?

Clear an event subscription.


Use Get-EventSubscriber to retrive details of current events. Clear the event with subscription id 1 and Get-EventSubscriber again to confirm that it has been removed.

Get-EventSubscriber Unregister-Event -SubscriptionId 1 Get-EventSubscriber

You will see that the event subscription has been cleared.
