    I would like to know how to clear just on line on the event log and also how to change the size file of the event log.

    Accepted Solution

    You cant clear out individual lines through the GUI, you'd have to edit the files manually. You can set the size of each event log file by either going to event logs mmc console, right clicking on the log and selecting properties.

    ...or setting the limits in group policy or local security policy.

    Right-click the partcular log in the left pane (application, system, etc).  Select properties.  There, you can change the maximum log size.  I don't know how to delete just 1 event.  That may be impossible since the ability to do so would forfeit the integrity of the logs for auditing.
