Hi Everyone,

I am dealing a very nerve-racking problem in event log. My company have a warehouse management program that is installed on one of our server. The server has no roles just a terminal server and it is just in workgroup.

The warehouse management program has a lot of scripts that was applied after install and I guess those scripts generating lots of irrelevant error message in the event log more than one hundred a day. These error can be safely ignored.

I there a way to filter the event log to make ONLY these errors dissappear?

thanks

How to Filter Log Events
To filter log events, follow these steps:

   1. Click Start, and then clickControl Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, then click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management. Or, open the MMC containing the Event Viewer snap-in.
   2. In the console tree, expand Event Viewer, and then click the log that contains the event that you want to view.
   3. On the View menu, click Filter.
   4. Click the Filter tab (if it is not already selected).
   5. Specify the filter options that you want, and then click OK.

Only events that match your filter criteria are displayed in the details pane.

To return the view to display all log entries, click Filter on the View menu, and then click Restore Defaults.
