Ad-Aware Free scan results deleted without preview ?

4 posts in this topic

AF deletes found 'malware' files automatically... gives user no options ?

Cant find a setting to let user review scan results, and choose whether or not to delete etc.

Past version/s seemed to have this 'preview' function.

What are we missing ?

Try switching to Advanced Mode, button bottom left corner of the GUI.

Also you can review past scan logs by opening explorer and navigating to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Logs. These files can be looked at with any text editor.

Thanks for the reply and info.
Switching to 'advanced mode' seems to have done the trick.
Guess Im going to need to ask another question... scan results show 'family' = unknown, 'category' = unknown.
Why cant it show the file name, link, or whatever ?
What would be the best forum to as that question ?

Under Family it normally gives the name of the infection and Category shows the type of infection. It must have found something using Behavior-based detection. Scans with behavior-based detection is a method of detecting unknown malware using systems of rules and patterns.
