Windows 7: Please help with CBS.log file.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Please help with CBS.log file.

Screenshot by Lightshot
My current CBS.log file goes WELL over 5 gigs sometimes, I really need some help with this.
Not exactly sure what to do, someone from Microsoft messed with my computer, and I had tons of trouble installing SP1, which now luckily I fixed myself.

I've managed to fix it all, but this is the last step I need. I cannot find out how to make this smaller, people tell me that file should be under 50 mb or around that, any ideas?

I've been trying to find it out, and I believe it was caused on Microsofts part, and they want me to pay for it but I don't have the money, nor is that right. Any help is appreciated...

Thanks in advance

Also is it normal for a winsxs folder to be at 22gb?
