    Each day I need to scan the entire network in our facility for audit failures in the Security Event Logs and for Windows password changes. Does anyone know of any software (preferably free) that can do this and generate a report?

    I'm tempted to try to write my own program in Visual Basic that can do this. If you don't know of any existing software, does anyone know what VB commands allow you to read a Windows Event Log?

    Might take a look at Eventquery.vbs, included with XP and Server 2003
