These look like Symantec log files.  See here for further information:

They are just letting you know of your windows updates. They can be deleted if you do not want me but they are just logs letting you know of updates. If you know windows you know they log everything. So if you set your windows to automatically update it does but still logs it to let you know about it.

Thank you both for your quick response, I believe now that they are Symantec logs as before there was IM Manager installed before. These can be deleted easily right?

I wonder if you could with other logs that we are not sure og, see below.

You would find the settings under
 Clients > Policies > Client Log settings
 For the database settings of the logs on the manager:
 Admin > Server > Edit Site Properties > Log Settings
you could locate the logs this way and delete them
as for the other part:
hey're "Service Quality Monitor" data collection timer files created from Windows Live Messenger. http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?show...#entry587827777

Though why would Window Live messenger logs be on a Server 2003 system as far as I am aware it has never been used on the server

Thanks
