How to create easier reporting for Windows auditing?

Q: How to create easier reporting for Windows auditing?

Hello,

My dad has all his important files in a folder named "IMP" in E: in Windows 7. I've set auditing object access failure and enabled auditing on the IMP folder and denied read access and delete folder for all other users.

Everything is working fine and I can check the event viewer whenever my dad wants to have a look at the logs. The problem is I am not always present when he wants to have a look at the logs and since he isn't too tech savvy it would be very difficult for him to go to event viewer, filter the log with event id no. 4656, Event Sources: Microsoft Windows security auditing, Task category: File System.

I was wondering if there is an easier way of generating logs for eg. automatically create a notepad file with all those filters once the audit failure triggers.

Please help

Preferred Solution: How to create easier reporting for Windows auditing?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Create a Custom View in Event Viewer, then he could just go to that item and view the relative log entries.

A:How to create easier reporting for Windows auditing?

probably by writing a bat file and executing with admin privileges... but you have to look if there is a way to do it with console commands to event viewer in the first place (it's likely possible).

I have a few of these "shortcuts", double click and Bam! A wall of commands gets executed. Time-saver man.

Why that anyway? If it is locked to other users what is there to log? Failed attempts to open it?

I really hope you are encrypting your drive, as this measure alone is a bit weak if the disk isn't encrypted. (a punk can simply boot that PC from a Linux liveCD or USB thumbdrive and access the unencrypted disk and those files ignoring the windows policy).

Has anyone had any luck with enabling Windows commandline process auditing as noted in the article: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn535776.aspx
I've been testing this out on a Windows 7 Prof system to see how commands executed via the commandline are recorded in the event logs. I was able to enable all of the policy settings as noted in the article however upon testing I've noticed that not all
commands are being recorded. For example del, rename, and copy commands are not being recorded whereas other sys-admin type commands (ipconfig, netstat, nslookup..etc) are being recorded. My question is does anyone know why these commands are not being recorded
since according to the example in the article they should be?

I changed ownership of my C:\ in order to change permissions, be able to audit, and delete files which are locked. Usually system files are locked and I ignore those when prompted that they cannot be changed without admin approval (even providing admin approval doesn't allow their modification). I'm wondering what I have to do to be able to make decisions on my own system? Does anyone know a good step by step guide? My old Windows installation is taking up 17 gigs on my hard drive and I have a 230g hard drive. Needless to say space is precious with the size of downloads/installations being what they are (games that are 20g, Windows updates that are 3g..). Thanks in advance.

Hello Everybody,
We have a requirement in our project to audit all security relevant events on the system, including the start/stop of auditing functions. The problem is that windows is not registering the start of event log service when you manually stop/start the service.
There only an audit event on the system log, but linked to the system startup and not under security category when you do the start/stop manually. Is this a windows bug or a matter of configuration?
Best regards,

Hi Everyone,

I am interested in upgrading many computers to Windows 8.1 (from Windows 8). Ideally I would like to create an upgrade DVD, which is 'self running' and contains the required update files - Download Windows 8.1 Update for x64-based Systems (KB2919355) from Official Microsoft Download Center

As Joe mentioned in this blog post, the amount of interest in the Windows 10 preview has been phenomenal. We appreciate that IT pros are trying out the new features and providing feedback. But more importantly, we appreciate the sheer number of devices that you are upgrading from previous versions of Windows ? whether from Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1. The telemetry from these upgrades enables us to further streamline and improve the upgrade process ? important because this is the primary way we expect organizations to deploy Windows 10.

In my blog post on September 30th, we introduced this idea of having a simpler deployment process, using an in-place upgrade instead of the traditional wipe-and-load approach that organizations have historically used to deploy new Windows versions. This upgrade process is designed to preserve the apps, data, and configuration from the existing Windows installation, taking care to put things back the way they need to be after Windows 10 has been installed on the system.

Of course it?s critical that at the same time we do everything we can to ensure that existing apps ?just work.?

I've just come across MBSA when sorting out a missing IE11 update and am impressed with it.

One item on the reports says:

NeitherLogon Success nor Logon Failure auditing are enabled. Enable auditing and turnon auditing for specific events such as logon and logoff. Be sure to monitoryour event log to watch for unauthorized access.

I've searched here and found several threads (mainly about auditing access to documents - none about Logon/Logoff) in which the route suggested was Control Panel -> Security & System -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Settings. There is no 'Local Security Settings' in my menu there and a search of my laptop has found nothing.

Is there an alternative route please?

A:How do I enable Auditing?

I forgot to add that the excellent MBSA provides a detailed explanation on every item and a 'how to correct this' link. Unfortunately, though, the link relates only to 'a computer running Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows XP, or Windows 2000' and also mentions 'Local Security Settings'.

It was very early when I posted this - I must have been half-asleep. I should post this on the Microsoft forum and let you guys get on helping those who need it more than I do.

I withdraw my problem (for now?) and apologise for wasting anyone's time.

Hi,

would anyone know if there's a possibility to switch off Application and System auditing in Windows XP? I've gone through some articles but neither talked about these 2, only Security. I know that the security function has to be enabled and can be disabled, what about the other 2? It consumes some resources which might be gained from this. I also noticed that Windows 7 logs security as well even if not set. I have 3518 entries in Win 7 Security log even though the audit policy is set to No auditing. Any hints how to disable?

Performance optimization is about one thing: making computer programs run faster. The execution of instructions is cheap for modern computer hardware while the fetching of instruction operands is expensive. Thus, memory usage can have a direct impact on how fast an application executes and is an important metric to optimize. In this article, we discuss the basics of memory optimization for .NET programs. First, we outline the cases where memory access is a bottleneck and is useful to optimize. Next, we discuss the general breakdown of how memory is used in a typical .NET program. Lastly, we discuss tools and strategies to determine the memory consumption of your .NET application and reduce it.

So put my hard drive back in the original MB and now Windows 7 is seeing the wrong CPU and Ram. The original compueter has an I5 and the one I put my HD in was an I3. Now Windows only sees the I3, not the I5. I have formatted, reset CMOS, updated BIOS, nothing has worked. Even took the CPU of the old board and put in on the other one and still nothing changed.

After reviewing the msinfo file, we can see that your system reports errors with some of the Microsoft files like ntdll.dll, kernelbase.dll,
etc. These are system files that our game needs. It's possible these are corrupt in parts of the file that we try to access or maybe there are different versions of the same file whereas others are in temp folders.

Some of our players could fix this first by reinstalling Windows, but if I were you, I would search the web for a response from Microsoft on
how to fix these files to see if this could get the game started again.

In the msinfo file under [Windows Error Reporting] you may also find more errors about some TEMP folders. We would suggest that the contents
of these are deleted after rebooting your PC. Afterwards do another restart so there is no reference to files in these folders.

Hopefully you can avoid a reinstallation of windows.

Ok so I disabled WER couple weekds ago due to it slowing down my connection as it was reporting hundreds of issues with GLID.

Now that there appears to be no more GLID problems I would like to re-enable WER so I can help MS improve Windows 7.

Unfortunately it wont restart. When I go into Services and change startup type from disabled to automatic or manual an error saying "The system cannot find the path specified" comes up. Is there anything I need to enable before restarting this service?

My processor is a Intel Core 2 duo CPU E8400 and I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and XP mode. The motherboard uses Intel ICH10 Southbridge.

Device manager shows the correct processor.

However several times when using either Windows tools or other tools I see AMD64 mentioned as the processor type. This surely cannot be correct?

A:Why is Windows reporting AMD64?

Can you provide some pictures showing this? What does CPUID say?
