Hi there. I would like to know if it is possible to clear the security logs stored in the Windows 2000 Event Viewer for a particular user regardless of the audits which are enabled for that particular user. Please let me know whether this is really possible in a Windows 2000 Active Directory environment and if it is possible, how it could be accomplished. Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would most probably save the current event log (Action, Save Log File As…) and then re-open that saved file in the viewer and perform a find (View, Find) the result will be based on the user or string for which you are searching.

    I understand that the log will be saved as .evt file and cna be used for customized querying. But I wanted to know whether the particular logs of the particular user can be deleted from the Event logger itself. Thanks.

    Selective editing of log is NOT allowed. If you save the log (.evt) as a file you can edit however you want. If you were allowed to selectively edit the live logfile then it would no longer have any audit value.
