Event log question

In my event viewer, I have a section named Security.  In that section, I see Success Audits listed by the millions (not really, just a huge number).  How can I turn off these Success Audits?  Since ALL of them are successful, and there seems to be one every few seconds, I figure I don't need them.

    Accepted Solution

    If you are using AD, please go to modify you GPO
    >Computer configuration> Security Settings> Local Policies>Audit Policy>

    You may set only audit failure only on "audit account logon events" and "audit logon events"

    You may also modify the local policy for workgroup computer.
