  1. Can individual events in Event Viewer be deleted/recovered?


    I learnt how to check Event Viewer logs to detect my kids using the computer outside of their alloted times.

    Now I'm thinking: what if they're deleting individual events? (I know they're not deleting whole logs as that's easy to detect), they know how to google for these easy hacks, that's my concern.

    How can I know if they've deleted an event? Could I recover it?

    The events I'm interested in are these:
    4624 sign in LogonType 7
    4625 unsuccessful sign in
    4634 sign out LogonType 2
    4800 locked
    4801 unlocked
    SYSTEM:
    6005 started
    6006 shut down
    6008 dirty/improper shutdown (seems to be the next start after a dirty shutdown and maybe preceeded by a gap of time, to be confirmed) shows message when the dirty took place.

    Any help much appreciated *092

    :)

  2. Any experience with alternatives to the Event Viewer?


    I'd like to be able to:


    1. Search for every instance of an event
    2. Delete individual events

    I've read about these apps:



    Please give your experiences with these apps or similar ones and list any things that you'd like Event Viewer to do.

    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.
