hi,
heres one way:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 sl : tstringlist;
  i : integer;
  s1 : string;
  SearchStr : string;
  place : integer;
begin
sl := tstringlist.create;
SL.LoadFromFile('C:\Winzip.log');
  SearchStr := 'File was CFFed';
  for i := 0 to SL.Count -1 do begin
    s1 := SL.Strings[i];
    Repeat
      Place := pos(SearchStr, s1);
      if place > 0 then begin
        Delete(s1, Place, Length(SearchStr));
        SL.Strings[i] := s1;
      end;
    until place = 0;
  end;
  sl.SaveToFile('C:\Winzip.log');
  sl.free;
end;
