I believe this will work, assuming the error statements and commands are not
longer than 4 lines:

infix str90 logtext 1-90 using /// 
 "C:\Documents and Settings\Scott_2\Desktop\log1.log", clear

gen f1 = substr(logtext,1,2)
gen byte f2= 1 if f1=="r("

replace f2 = 1 if f2[_n+3] == 1 & f1 != ""
replace f2 = 1 if f2[_n+2] == 1 & f1[_n+2] == "r("
replace f2 = 1 if f2[_n+1] == 1 & f1[_n+1] == "r("
 
drop if f2 == 1
drop f2 f1
outfile logtext using  /// 
"C:\Documents and Settings\Scott_2\Desktop\clean_log1.log", /// 
 replace noquote  wide rjs
