Thousands of Errors in Event Viewer Daily

When checking Event Viewer, I've noticed that there are thousands of errors (sometimes daily) but nearly 99% of them are non-critical and I've seen this on many other computers, not just mine.

Is there really a solution to prevent these, especially when they really aren't affecting the way the computer works?

can you post the event id from event viewer? did you check the system clock is set correctly?

are they pointing to the same software, or hardware?
also - you can test if a startup program is the cause with msconfig
in the startup tab - clcik disable all and reboot and test; if the errors continue, none of these programs are the cause
if no errors, enable the programs in groups to find the culprit

Found out that nearly 100% of the issues are Audit Failures due to connections being blocked.

Event Viewer is specific in that the thousands of errors are Audit Failures due to blocking connections.
