Opening large files (>2GB) in Windows

Once I had to go through an unusually large log file which was around 2GB. I am a regular Notepad++ user but it couldn't handle the file. In addition to opening the file I also needed to search around the file for keywords like Error or Exception. I found klogg to be just the right tool for me. It allows for viewing as well searching for words within the large text file easily.
