    The event viewer just displays the logs of your machine's operation. It is not lagging your computer. Entries are just added one entry at a time to the logs. Those errors and warnings might tell you something about whats wrong with your PC. There is no need to empty the logs.

    Usually, whats lagging a computer are too many programs running automatically after login. To see them, run 'msconfig' and look at the Services tab and Startup tab. You can disable them from starting using msconfig.
