How to Delete the Event Viewer Log

The Windows Event Viewer keeps a record of noteworthy events so you'll have information on security, application or system issues on your computer. It's helpful to become familiar with the Event Viewer as it helps identify problems, such as a device driver that doesn't load, file errors, invalid log-on attempts and file deletions. This is valuable information for administrators and advanced users, especially during troubleshooting. The Event Viewer contains separate logs for applications, security, system and Internet Explorer events. It takes only a couple of minutes to delete all four logs.
