Go into the Start Menu and go to Programs, then go to Administrative Tools.  Select Event Viewer.  This is the log file.  It tracks security, system problems, and application events.  This is just there in case you have a problem, like system drivers failing, or application errors, it keeps a record of them that you can use to troubleshoot the problems.  Some applications record an event in the application part of the log everytime they start.  Just select and delete all of the application events.  If any of them are in red, they may be errors.

Hi
From the Event Viewer you can clear the logs. You can also specify the file size of each log and how often entries should be deleted, or to have entries overwritten when space is required for new entries.
