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

You do not say, so I am stabbing in the dark here about what OS this is. In XP you can set the event log size to whatever size you want and tell the log to “overwrite as necessary”. This way the log never “fills up” but continues to overwrite and keeps it at a specific size. There are other options in the properties of the event log as well. Of course you may be asking how to exclude this report altogether from being logged. It would help to know which it is you want to do. If this is not a Windows OS please specify. Including the details always helps you get the best answer. Thanks.

    I am assuming that windows xp is your O/S. If it is then in addition to technochics answer you can use the filter available to filter only the events you want to see. On the Manage right click on the event catagory you want to apply the filter to, Application, System are the two main catagories that track everything and all the time. Go to PropertiesFilter you should see a list of check boxes that have check marks in each box. Choose from here what cataogories you really need to collect events on, uncheck the rest of the boxes. click apply, on the genreal tab you ca further limit the amount of data collected. Set the log size, then you can overwirte events, as technochic explained earlier. Click apply and them OK and you are done. Most times, the Information event is the one that creates the most logs.
