Windows event log tools

Any tools can simplify reading windows event log for NT domain ?
May be some statics, reports, easy to trace why the domain ID is always locked out.

LogParser ? http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/tools/logparser/default.mspx
What do you mean Domain ID? - do you mean a user account?
If so the usual reason for this is either - someone id trying to use thae account/password to break into your system
or (and usually more liklely)
There is a service or scheduled task that someone has set up to run with a particular username/password. Subsequently the password has been changed but the service/task continues to try and run with the old password and the account is locked as a result.
