Unnecessary user logs in security log

I have setup auditing on a folder on our network to log object access.  This is on a windows 2000 server computer. Basically I want to keep the amount of logs in the security logs to a minimum only logging events that relate to users who access.  This does work but in addition I am getting logs for user "System" around 40 a day which is not needed.  Is there any way of turning this off so only Users who access the file generates a log ?  There are normally about 10 logs for the same event (562 or 560) at the same time, the type being "succesfull audit"

Hope this makes sense, look forward to any help you can offer.

I've been playing around with the same thing. When you turn on auditing of objects then some default events will start showing up in your event logs.  562 and 560 are two big ones.

Here is a microsoft kb that talks about it....However, I have tried following the instructions for a domain controller and have been unsuccessful at getting it to work. But thought I'd share atleast why you are getting those.
