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

You need to edit the GPO which is securing the Security log from being cleared and give your login, and any other logins which should have the rights to clear that log.

After the GPO has been edited, force replication (if you have more than one DC) and then run gpupdate on the client.
