Hello Henri

Here are some articles that should help. For most of your machines you can
change who can view/manage the event logs via group policy.

For Win2K and above use the following.
300549 HOW TO: Enable and Apply Security Auditing in Windows 2000
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=300549
For NT4 Machine use the following.
245207 How to: Determine NTRIGHTS Names and Meanings
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=245207

Thank you
