Windows 200

sure sounds like a f**ked up OS doesnt it. A log file is keeping anyone from logging in...
Maybe an update some years ago should have been made

Won't have very many more of them. The new semester starts Tuesday. Back to the grind.
At least I mostly like the grind.

I am uncertain what computer technology was in place for getting by log file issues.
Surely the data is somewhere, unless it was lost in the Library of Alexandria incident.

What you need to do

With an OS as old as that You should just set the logs on fire then when they burn down they'll take up less room.
I think the Default pw back then was ugh

Normally

It is the Security log and should state only an Administrator can logon.
Try the local admin account or tweak this script (You could also add a line to set the overwrite or size):

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate, (Security)}!\\" _
& strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colLogFiles = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_NTEventLogFile where LogFileName='Security'")
For Each objLogfile in colLogFiles
objLogFile.ClearEventLog()
Next
