"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

nope...

well, not easily.

you could slave the hard drive off to an alternate computer, or boot to an alternate live cd... convert the event log to a usable format, edit it, convert it back, then reboot... but the conversion part is nearly impossible

Simple answer is no.

By default, Event Viewer log files use the .evt extension and are located in the following folder:

%SystemRoot%\System32\Config

If you take a look at your log files, they aren't very human friendly. If you try to mod it and make an error, you will corrupt the log file and cause issues, perhaps even lose the data.

There is no way to do this simply because it would be open to abuse from people trying to conceal what they are doing.

Javedshaikh00, you have not responded to any expert comments, why are you trying to delete the question?

i think the first 4 comments are all correct, some earlier than others, but just because you didn't get the answer you want isn't a valid reason to just close/delete the question...  we're here to help, and for points, but when we don't get any feedback from the author, and no points, that's kinda wrong

This question should be closed with the 1st four comments receiving split points, just because you don't like the answer, doesn't mean you just close it off, especially without any feedback what so ever.
