How to get access to my event viewer

With Profile Wizard I have migrated a domain account to a local account on a Windows 7 machine. It was largely succesful except for the Event Viewer which still can only be accessed from within the original domain account. In the new local account (which contains the original events) I get an access denied message.

Is there a way to grab the permissions back?

On the Event Viewers setup in Services in the NEW account most options are greyed. In the old domain account I stil can do something.

Log in as domain account and Go to this folder %SystemRoot%\System32\Winevt\Logs

Go to properties of above folder and in Security Tab, grant Full access to your local user you want to grant access.

Could it be that your new account is not a member of the local admin group anymore? Check it.
As standard user, the security log for example is not accessible at all by default.

McKnife, that was it indeed. I changed the permissions as suggested by Bominthu, but it made no difference. Then I logged in as the Local Admin and saw that the problematic account had only User status. I was convinced that I had it originally set as Administrator so I'll pay extra attention with the next workstations. And indeed, changing the status worked.
Sothank you both very much!
