Microsoft Windows is Spyware plain and simple, always has been.
In Version 7 there were about 500 Event Logs.
In my Windows 10 there are over 1,146 Event Logs.

They have an extension of .EVTX and are stored in: C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs

And if you want to take a look at each of the Event Logs download Event Log Explorer from here:

If you want to clear all of them, open up a CMD window as administrator and run this script.

FWIW, I do this once a day since I have never needed to use any information contained in any of the event logs.

echo Event Logs have been cleared! ^
goto theEnd

echo clearing %1
wevtutil.exe cl %1

echo You must run this script as an Administrator!
