Files that contain the .log file extension are commonly used by a variety of computer operating systems and software applications. The LOG files normally contain plain text logs of events that have occurred within the associated software program.
Log files are commonly used by operating systems to keep track of system events and by software installation programs to list the locations and names of the files that have been installed on a user's system.
The HijackThis, LabVIEW and SeeYou software programs are also known to use the .log file suffix for log files that are referenced by the computer applications.
