.Log files - Can I delete?

Prompted to search my computer for a particular log file I was amazed how many there are dotted over the system. Are they necessary? For example :

In local settings\temp folder is OHotfix(00002)_Msi.log with a whopping 7.5 MB and there are 3 similar ones. In C:\windows security are 4 files each over 1 MB starting edb****.log.

Some of these file names appear in blue that suggests they may be different - what does that mean?

Are these files hogging space & can I delete them safely?

And nobody rescued me.

Anyone else have any advice before I do the deed?
