My only concern with this, is that, for some reason I don't under stand, when the security log fills up, my clients can't log in to their computers until I go in as admin and clear the log.  It's like even though there is no user logging into the nas unit, it is generating these logs and it affects everyone on the network.  Any ideas on how to correct this?

Have you checked the time synch?
or tried to reset the computer account password?

Welllll, thanks for the links.  I have checked the time.  The NAS was an hour off so I fixed that.  Still getting the event errors though.  Looked at the other link....(big sigh).  

The users on my network are still filling up with event logs and I have to continually log in as the admin and clear them out before anyone else can log on.  I did notice that the local computer logs are different from that of the server.  The local computer logs give the error "The windows firewall has detected an application listening for incoming traffic"  

I have set all policies to not report any events temporarily to see if that would help.  Has not.

Anything else up your sleeve?

DId you try resetting the machine account password?

Did you set the DONT_REQ_PREAUTH flag ?
You could also increase the log size and have it overwrite as needed
