Since the introduction of the Windows Advanced Audit Policy, fine-grain control has been provided to system activity auditing. This allows detailed auditing to be applied more precisely with unwanted events being suppressed at source. The audit policy settings work in conjunction with a 'System Access Control List' (SACL).
