Windows Event Viewer: Security Log Full Permafix

Security Log

"The Security log is full and can only be cleared by an administrator."

Familiar, huh?

Up until now, people in my network have seen this message, but since they are local admins, Windows still allows them to login.

On our manufacturing floor, however, the users are not local administrators and are therefore unable to login once the security log is full.  For the past couple days I have been racking my brain over this one computer whose log was filling up every day!!

Hit the jump to see the fix...
