There is BareTail, assuming you are basically looking for a Windows tail solution.

  1. Baretail (mentioned by Rich) is a light-weight solution.

  2. If you are Notepad++ user, you may install Document Monitor plugin to "tail" the file.

If these solutions don't suit your need, you may find many alternatives in a similar question in StackOverflow (How to monitor a text file in realtime).

The open source program Tail for Win32 would suit you.
