Hi All

Newbie question.

I have Ad-Aware Free Antivirus +, Version 10.1.211.3882, running on Windows XP SP3.

I recently had a scan come back with one detected threat. I inadvertently clicked "clean" and the threat is now "deleted". I can view the results of the scan by clicking on the relevant Scan History Report, which brings up what is termed a "Detailed Report". This suggests there was 1 threat detected and 2 traces detected. It goes on to suggest that 1 threat was deleted.

How can I find out what the threat was (in case it was a false positive on a benign program that I might need to re-install)?

Thanks

Peter (paejunk)

Hi paejunk,

Is the threat listed on the Quarantine tab?
If yes, please double-click the threat name. In the new box, the traces with file names should be listed.

Hi Cecilia

Thanks for the quick reply.

No, I'm afraid the quarantine is empty. :(

Any other ideas? Perhaps there are some log files somewhere...?

Cheers, Peter

Hi paejunk,

You are welcome :)

This is the log file:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Lavasoft\AntiMalware\History\.xml
If you want to upload the log file, you need to zip it first: Right-click the file and select "Send to" - "Compressed folder"
To upload the file, click on the "More Reply Options" button first.

I recommend that you upgrade to the latest version of Ad-Aware, Ad-Aware 10.4. A lot of bugs have been fixed since 10.1.
