  1. Can event viewer events be easily deleted (by teens)?


    I'm using Event Viewer in Windows 10 to control my kids screen time. One of my kids (14yo) is a bit too tech savvy so I wonder if he may have googled for a way to delete entries (such as 4634 sign out LogonType 2 just to give an example). I guess this needs too much knowledge for him, am I right?

    Any help much welcome.

    :)

    You don't need to delete anything in the Event Viewer, please ignore any responses suggesting you should. They are automatically managed by Windows and do not take up any space.
