    Disable logging

    Open the PROPERTIES sheet for most any Event Viewer item and there is a check mark in the "Enable logging" box.
    However, the box is grayed out, so it cannot be UNchecked. Can this be done?

    It can be done via registry, but be careful about, what you disable. I disable those:

    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\Audio" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\FaceRecoTel" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\FaceUnlock" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\ReadyBoot" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\WiFiSession" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f
