How do you turn off IIS FTP service from logging failed logins into the system event log

I am looking to make our IIS ftp server stop logging failed password attempts into the
system event log.  I know I can turn off logging to the root/logfiles directory but does not
accomplish what I am looking for.

Any help would be appreciated

I have currently set event viewer to filter the messages out.

The FTP service doesn't log to the security log - the LogonUser API (or referenced authentication package) does.

The only way to get failed logons to not get logged is to turn of auditing for failed logons in the local security policy.
Bear in mind that this will also prevent logging failed logon attempts by *any* process, not just the FTp service.
