Exclamation Random log files on C:\

Lately, my PC has been adding a ton of random log files on my C:\

Not sure where they are coming from, but They come in by the hundreds after a month or so. Im not installing new software at all! Here's a sample....

Default Re: Random log files on C:\

I get these too, but I have read that it is something to do with Windows Service Pack 2. I am curious though to hear what other people know about this though.
