Well, from what I see, this log file is created in my computer too, but I don't think it slows down anything...

My boot time: 24secs.

You could always stop the wmi service but I wouldn't suggest you do so!

Are you sure it's causing you delays???

I think in our time, a 4MB file is not considered a large log.

Average SSD speeds are about 120MB/s read and 100MB/s write....(manufacturer specs, samsung specific)
