Error: the security log on this system is full.

The security setting the default: maximum log size 512 kb, overwrite events older than 7 days.

I don't want to enter the adm. password everytime an user try to login and clear the security log. What can i do to solve this problem for good?

You have few options.

You can increase the size of security log.

You can overwrite events earlier, but reducing the number of days to retrain from 7 to a lower number.

Or you can investigate why is it getting filled up, are you logging too many events that you do not need? Review the log to find out.

You can increase the size of the logs to 100MB/102400kb (or a max of 400mb/419424KB).  But you should see what is beeing logged; if the items are serious enough, they should be addressed.  If its just a lot of 'junk' and the potential for attempts to compromise the XP is minimal, you can probably keep it about this config 100mb with overwrites for events older than 7 days.  On a normal machine that should be more than ample space to contain 7 days worth of logs.
