A Windows NT system's user audit policy does not log an event success
or failure, e.g. for Logon and Logoff, File and Object Access, Use of
User Rights, User and Group Management, Security Policy Changes,
Restart, Shutdown, and System, and Process Tracking.

It is far less interesting what a user does successfully that what they
attempt and fail at.

A Windows NT system's file audit policy does not log an event success
or failure for security-critical files or directories.

Some files and directories are clearly understood to be critical. Others are
unclear. We need to clarify that critical is.

It is far less interesting what a user does successfully that what they

A Windows NT system's registry audit policy does not log an event
success or failure for non-critical registry keys.

VOTE: Modify

Again only failure may be of interest. It would be impractical to wad
through the incredibly large amount of logging that this would generate. It
could overwhelm log entries that you might find interesting.
