I have enabled logging on a windows 2008 R2 server to help troubleshoot a problem. After disabling the logging and attempting to view the log file in Notepad (pfirewall under default path) I am receiving an "Access Denid" message.

I am logged in as a domain admin, and have tried running the firewall app as a local admin with the same result. I have tried access also with the fiewall switched off, and with the app closed to no avail.
