Can someone tell me how to delete Event Logs on Windows Server 2003? I have a number of application logs in the Event Viewer - how can these be removed?

I've tried disabling the Event Log service on startup and removing the physical .evt files from

C:\Windows\system32\config

But when I enable the Event Log service and reboot the files are returned.

Found the answer:

Go to[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Eventlog]and delete your custom log folder.
