Several 2GB log files?

I recently ran a file/folder size scan on my Win7 x64 PC which has McAfee LiveSafe, and noticed that I have several 1.94GB .log files in some McAfee folders - here are the locations:

1)   C:\ProgramData\McAfee\MSC\Logs\D7FB805D-8827-4A38-8241-340B5D18D9F7.log

2)   C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\McAfee\MSC\Logs\D7FB805D-8827-4A38-8241-340B5D18D9F7.log

3)   C:\Users\All Users\McAfee\MSC\Logs\D7FB805D-8827-4A38-8241-340B5D18D9F7.log

That's about 6GB! Anybody know what these are, whether they can be shrunk? My drive is somewhat limnited in space currently, and I'd like to free up some room... Also, just FYI none of those locations/files show up in my Registry anywhere...

Thanks folks!@

Those are the software logs for the last 60 days I believe.

If you want to get rid of them you can ask Technical Support if there is perhaps some kind of verbose logging turned on in error. as they shouldn't be that large.

                       I am inclined also to agree with Collegues Ex_Brit/Peacekeeper. As the largest file I can see on my system is only 73mb. Indeed a call to Technical Support is in order.
