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
