My virus scanner has recently picked up the presence of the Mid/Kakworm virus in two log files on my Exchange Server. My Virus scanner (Sophos) could not disinfect these files.

C:\Program Files\Exchsvr\MDBData\E000005B.log
C:\Program Files\Exchsvr\MDBData\E0000073.log

Is it safe to delete these files? As i don't want to corrupt any valuable email data.

According to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q151214 it is safe to delete the log files in the EDBDATA directory at any time.  It references DLV.LOG, SND.log, DLV*.log, and SND*.log.  No mention of E*.log.
