Default Security log on this system is full

My roommate is currently using my drew laptop and when she tries to log onto her account and it says that the "security log on this system is full. Only administrators can log on to fix the problem."
She saved all her work on her account on my computer and now she cannot get on it.

My computer is a Thinkpad X61 and it has XP on it
Can anyone help me?

To clear the security log, you will have to log into the computer yourself since you are an Administrator. Then open Control Panel and Administrative Tools. Click Event Viewer and right click on Security and select "clear all events." You will be given an option to save the log, which isn't a requirement. Once the log is clear, log out and she should be able to log in again.
