In Symantec Endpoint Protection, I want all the logs to be cleared. E.g., in Antivirus and Antispyware Protection Logs, and Risk Log tab, when I select an item and click either Clean or Delete, I got an error message and nothing got cleared. Any workaround?

EDIT: I'm using managed Endpoint Protection, version 11.0.62, OS is Windows 7 64-bit

Welcome to Superuser. A little more info will help us help you. What operating system are you using? Are you on a managed network (network administrator other than you) or a personal computer? What version of End Point? All of these things matter when it comes to being able to answer your question. – CharlieRB Apr 13 '12 at 11:33
Thank you @CharlieRB, I've updated the question to include such information. – ryenus Apr 13 '12 at 12:01
Forgot to ask if you can post the error message or a screen shot? – CharlieRB Apr 13 '12 at 13:40
If managed client, has the admin set a retention period for logs? – Dave M Apr 13 '12 at 15:15
What exactly is the error message? Is this PC part of a domain, with SEP managed by the domain server? – Moab Apr 13 '12 at 15:46

You can make Symantec Endpoint auto delete the logs by making the logs seem older than 6 months. For this:

  1. Move ahead your system date by 6 months.
  2. Save and restart the system.
  3. Check... all your logs would have already been removed.
  4. Reset your system date to today's date.
