    I have my computer (Windows Vista) set up to track and record all activity in
    the guest account.
    However, after reviewing the summary I don't know how to delete the
    information. Over time it will keep building up.
    Please let me know hot to delete the summary.
    Thank you!

    I saw this reply in a previous posting by
    Rick Rogers, aka "Nutcase" - Microsoft MVP
    Type EVENTVWR.MSC into the start/search box, look under Application and
    Service Logs/Microsoft/Windows/Parental Controls, click on the log, then
    click Action/Clear log.
    hope this helps if it does thank Rick

    Thanks. I tried it, but it's a little different.
    After clicking on Parental controls, there was no option under "action" to
    clear log. Rather I right-clicked the log, clicked properties, and in the new
    properties window there was a button to clear log. I did it, and am now going
    to check if it worked.
    Please forward this new information to Rick. Thanks.

    Yes, the link does work. I guess my computer was misbehaving before. :)
    Thanks alot for the information. It works.
    By the way, if I clear the application log, what else does it delete? Is it
    a risk to clear?

  10. what else does it delete? Is it a risk to clear?

    It clears all those entries created by other applications (Windows Installer setup errors, Windows Explorer crashes, application crash details and informational messages). Event log information is used for troubleshooting, and clearing them does not create any harm.
