I've encountered this problem in my server - Windows server 2008 SP2. Whenever I try to filter the log with option - "last 30 days". I got the result which was more than 30 days from today.

Works fine for me. Are you reading the dates correctly? That is, the system locale is set to US style dates and you live in the UK. – Apr 1 '11 at 3:32
Also make sure your system time is correct. – Apr 1 '11 at 3:35
I checked the Regional settings, everything is default - US standard.The time is correct. Also when I saved the filtered log, the information is usually less than the result I saw in the Event Viewer. – Dzung Apr 1 '11 at 7:41
