Hi,
  I have a SBS2011 and there are two CRITICAL ERRORS constantly recorded in Event Viewer Application Log section. I like to address these errors, but don't have a clue. I don't use SharePoint. In fact I don't know what it is.

Thanks in advance.

Does the sharepoint farm account have NTFS permissions on the logs folder?

Go to Central Admin and then:
Central Administration - Site Settings - People and Groups - Farm Administrators

Check that one of the accounts here has the encessary permissions by navigating to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\ and right clicking the folder called logs and then selecting properties - security

Does the sharepoint farm account have NTFS permissions on the logs folder?  ---> Since I'm not familiar with Sharepoint, I don't understand what you are saying at all.

Go to Central Admin and then:
Central Administration - Site Settings - People and Groups - Farm Administrators  ---> I don't understand what you are saying.

-------> What do you want me to do with the folder "14"?

There were two reasons why I posted this question.
(1) Obviously I wanted to address this critial issue from the Event Viewer.
(2) Another reason, more immediate problem, is that at least once a day, the internet connection gets lost. All user workstaions point their DNS to SBS2011 (192.168.254.10) and gateway to Linksys Router (192.168.254.254) which is connected to ISP Equipment via Ethernet cable. I am thinking that the internet outage problem stems probably from either ISP equipment or my linksys router, but I just wanted to make sure that these two errors that are recorded every two minutes are NOT the cause of this internet outage problem.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I wouldn't have a clue about number 2 but I'm almost certain this wouldn't cause permission denied on folder errors....

Open the central admin site and follow the path I gave you to farm administrators.
Note which accounts are in there.

Open windows explorer and go to the folder I mention above and then right click on the folder called "14" and select properties. One of the tabs on this window is called "security" click this tab.
Under here you will see accounts that have certain permissions for the 14 folder.
Do the account(s) that you noted earlier appear in this list?
If not, you need to add them.

Please ignore my posting above "(2)  Another reason, more immediate problem, is that at least once a day, the internet connection gets lost ...".
I talked to ISP and there were errors on their ethernet port. So they are addressing it.

Anyway If these are these errors, what kind of impact do they have on the operatioin of SBS2011?

I thought we were dealing with your question regarding access denied to the logs folder on the file system?

Yes we are still dealing with "question regarding access denied to the logs folder".
My question is why it is critical error and if this error is not fixed, what kind of impact will it have on the operation of SBS2011?

It is deemed critical as it affects a core part of sharepoint processing - logging.
The impact will be no logs therefore no diagnostics.
The error seems to indicate that the windows account being used to write to the logs does not have any/correct access to the windows folder "logs"
