Which is the fastest tool to search through Windows Event Logs?

If you need to comb through tons of Windows Event Logs especially Security logs, it may take a long time due to the size. There are many different tools/scripts out there which can search the logs but each one has its own strengths and weaknesses.

I’ve done some comparison and the champion turns out to be wevtutil.exe tool.  It’s many many times a lot faster than any other tools.  Do try it out!
