Windows 7 "custom views" how to clear admin events log?

Windows 7 "custom views" how to clear admin events log?
Views: 43
My question is regarding the "events log" found in Administrative tools. I can clear every log in events under "WINDOWS LOGS", however the one I cant find a way to reset or clear is the one known as "CUSTOM VIEWS" (the one that looks like a folder with a funnel on it. This folder has a drop down icon, that looks like a funnel with the name "ADMINISTRATIVE EVENTS" next to it.
When I click this it shows all the warnings and errors going way back to the day I originally installed windows 7 which was four months ago!
No one has come up with an answer to my question or clearly understands which log I am referring to.
How do I clear this part of the log? Nothing I do shows any clear or delete options to remove those old way out of date error messages.
Is there a way to clear this part of the log and if so, how is it done?

windows explorer always shows a folder when logging in

Here's my issue:

* Running Windows 7 Pro
* When I log in to the admin account on my PC, Windows Explorer always shows the following folder
* C:\Users\Dad\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Sta rt Menu\Programs\Startup\Plugins

Dad is the account designated as Admin on the PC.

If I close the folder, log off, and log back in, the folder still shows up. (I do not have the Folder Options View option "Restore previous folder windows at logon checked.)

Run a batch file at logon without admin password?

I have a Truecrypt file container. For some reason, TC will not automatically "mount selected volume on start up," a "feature" of TC that doesn't seem to work for me.

I created a batch file to do what TC is supposed to do:
d:\TrueCrypt\TrueCrypt.exe /a favorites /quit

This is in my Startup group. However, when I log on as a standard user, it always demands an admin password before running TrueCrypt.

Can't get System Admin privileges in Windows 7

I gave myself 'System Admin' privileges when I set up my new computer with Windows 7. But some things are not running as expected and I can't find the "System Admin" account that the book says should be there when I do "Switch User".

In my usual account, with 'System Admin privileges', why am I getting this?

How to bring the "Sort by" bar to all folder views in Windows 7?

Is there a way to bring back the column headers in the large icons view (and all other folder views) in Windows 7?

Unable to log into domain

I configured active directory in my server (windows server 2003) and tried one of the client to log into the domain. But surprisingly I cannot log into the machine using the domain. I getthe message "The system cannot log you now because the domain OFFICE is not available".

Infact I was able to create users and assign to groups and then allow the client to join the domain. But still then I get this problem for which I don't have any ideas.

So what does it mean? how should I make the domain available.

sort option in various views

Vista allowed the contents of a window to be sorted by name, date modified, etc in any view -- but it appears Windows 7 drops that menu bar for all views other than "details" view. I can right-click within the box to sort, but it's very inefficient. Any way to retain that detail bar in all views?
Below are screenshots of what I'm talking about. The Vista view shows a folder of icons with the sort menu available. The detail view on Windows 7 highlights in yellow the sort options I need for all views, and icon view shows how it disappears. I found that option terribly helpful in quickly sorting the contents of a folder without having to right click and mouse down through the menus that way.

Upgrading From Windows XP to Windows 7

According to this article:
someone who has Windows XP installed should be able to purchase the Upgrade Version of Windows 7. (Of course, all other software would have to be re-installed.)

Clicking on the link "Upgrading From Windows XP to Windows 7 (Custom Installation)" actually takes me to an article that deals with "Upgrading From Windows Vista to Windows 7 (Custom Installation)".

I called Microsoft's Personal Support team (at 800-936-5700) and they told me that if I want to switch from Windows XP (SP3) to Windows 7, I would need to purchase the Full Retail Version of Windows 7.

So: Can I, or can I not, purchase the Upgrade Version of Windows 7 if I currently have a legit copy Windows XP (SP3) installed? (PS: I am fully aware that when switching from Windows XP toWindows 7 requires re-installation of all the other software!)

Upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7

If you can't upgrade your computer running Windows Vista to Windows 7, you'll need to select the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. A custom installation doesn't preserve your programs, files, or settings. It's sometimes called a "clean" installation for that reason. A custom installation is more complex, and it can sometimes take a couple of hours to complete. We created this five-step tutorial to help guide you through the entire process each step of the way.

Windows Explorer Startup Loop

I have a problem with my Windows 7 desktop. When I log in to my account, it only displays the taskbar and I see "Windows Explorer has stopped working" message. Then it says "Windows Explorer is restarting", and goes into a loop.
