Hi gfvesley,

Yes, the file should have been moved from its original location to the quarantine of adaware antivirus.

You can check out the results of scans by going to the "Scan" page then scroll down to do the following:

pic-1 - You have for example "A)" a report list of manual scans or "B)" a report of scheduled scan where you can "View" a specific scan report for either of the two specific type scans. The "View" buttons will take you to what you see in pic-2.

pic-2 - By clicking on the "View" buttons pointed out in pic-1 you can get to this "Scan Report List" page where you can get more "Details" by clicking the "Details" link for any one of the performed scans you might be interested in looking at additional scan details.

pic-3 - A click on "Details" as illustrated in pic-2 will get you to the "Scan Report Details" page where you can determine the outcome of the scan including threats found and what was done about each threat found.

pic-4 - Provides an example where the "Objects Detected" option has been expanded (by clicking the circled toggle icon) to show details of the threats detected for the performed scan that was selected to get more details on what was done with each of the detected threats.
