How to view detailed scan log of previous full scan?

Recommended Posts

Today I've installed AdAware 10.2 and scanned my computer using "Full Scan" settings.
It went around 3 hours when it finished and reported 43 threats, I marked most of them "quarantine" and few of them as "ignore" (for items I suspected that it was a false positive, so I could deal with it later), then clicked "Clean".

But, afterward I need to get back to see which file (the full path) that I clicked "ignore", for further investigation
(since AdAware didn't allow me to "Save Logs"), I expected that there will be some kind of scan log kept in the "Reports" section.

When I clicked on the report, I found nothing but a short summary about that scan.
How to get the full scan report (full path of the threat and their identification +scan settings) from the previous scan? preferably in text file format.

I hope I wouldn't need to re-scan my PC all over again to get the information.

Hi nvtj,

You will find the log files in this folder:
XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\AntiMalware\History\.xml
Vista and 7 - C:\ProgramData\Lavasoft\AntiMalware\History\.xml

Note that, for example, Application Data is a hidden folder and you need to turn on display of hidden files in "Control Panel" - "Folder Options" to be able to see it.
