Cleaning up spiceworks logs

Looking for a simple way way to remove the logs left behind from spiceworks. A one click option that blows them all away or a script that deletes everything from these two folders. The log directory and httpd\log folder fills up fast or just turn them off would be nice to. Spiceworks runs on Windows 7 desktop.

I use a script called LogCleaner which can be run every month and deletes logs older than x days old.
You can get it from here: http://community.spiceworks.com/scripts/show/884-iis-log-cleanup-script

Close Spiceworks \Delete the folder C:\Program Files\Spiceworks\Log.
This assumes you make no backup of the Log and really want to remove, irretrievably, the Log.

It takes almost an hour to start up spiceworks probably should have noted that. Was hoping for a bat script that I can just click to delete everything in that folder. When I try del c:\folder location it says specific path is not found

Maybe I misunderstand.  You are doing "Close Spiceworks \Delete the folder C:\Program Files\Spiceworks\Log" .  So Spiceworks is not running.  Everything is done within Windows.  Log could be a hidden folder, so:
To really show all hidden folders and files
1) In Explorer, click Organize in ToolBar|click "Folder and Search Options"|View|uncheck "Hide protected operating system files"|Yes|Apply|OK.  
2) And if not already done, under "Hidden Files and Folders", check "Show hidden files, folders,..." and uncheck "Don't show hidden files, folders...".

Additional note:
Note that the LogCleaner script can be modified to apply to any log folder or types of logs, not just IIS logs.
