Server 2003 and Event Viewer Error

  1. Hello

    We have a Server 2003, logged on as administrator account or administrator privilege, Event Viewer allows Save then Clear, but not Clear and save.


    From the server,
    Event Viewer
    Select Application
    Clear All Events
    Do you want to save “Application” before clearing?
    Yes
    Save “Application” As
    Message “Clearing the event log failed because of the following error:” Access is denied


    From the server,
    Event Viewer
    Select Application
    Save log file as
    Save
    Then Clear, No problem

    Any ideas what would cause this? Worked for years Event Viewer Clear, then Save As, but now only save first, then clear

    Thanks

    B.
