windows security log is full

When I remote into my work computer from home, I get an error message about 'windows security log is full'. Once I click OK, everything seems to work fine.

"Whereas you won't be adversely affected by it from a performance standpoint, you will not receive security notifications that get sent to that event log which can be worrisome.

You can go into Computer Management, expand the Event Viewer, right-click on the Security event log and set properties for the log size there which can make that notification go away. I'd suggest Overwrite events as needed in your case."
