How to clear Event viewer with admin rights?

Recommended Posts


I want 2 clear event logs of domain machines with domain user (Restricted user) logged in.

I m using _EventLog__Clear to clear logs. but this command runs with Admin rights. As domain user doesn't have right

to clear Application, Security etc. logs.

Is there any way so that i can use _EventLog__Clear to run with Admin rights. like runas command.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Use #RequireAdmin at the beginning of your script.

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.
