Windows 7: Event Viewer Clean Out

Event Viewer Clean Out

Is there a way to delete some or all the entries in Event Viewer / Custom Views / Administrative Events?

This things logs a bunch of stuff for Acobat and Spybot and for my 3ware SATA controller card. I do not need all this garbage piling up and was just wondering if there is a way to clean it out once in awhile.

I looked and can not see away to do it.

Thanks, but what I was wondering is if there is a batch file like the one Danny posted for Windows 7 that will just clear everything out for XP the same way the batch file did for Windows 7.
