I have enabled Security Logging in the Default GPO.. Both Logon Events and Account Logon events and my security log is populated with 1000s of events. What I need is simply Events that show the Username, the time, and the machine. Some 4624 events have this, some list the machine, others list a server  account. How do I accomplish this? This is very frustrating. I do not see how I can effectively filter the Events to just display the relevant information. This has to be a common question as this is the most basic logging request.  I don't see any 540 events. I think that may have had the correct information in server 2003

You are going to get a ton of noise by full logging like that.  Another method is to use a simple login script

Can I output the information to a syslog like kiwi instead of a .txt file?
