View Log Files

SUMMARY: Access Ad-Aware log files to help determine your computer's potential vulnerabilities.

You can view Ad-Aware's log files from outside the tool using Notepad, Microsoft Word, or any other text editor/viewer. Ad-Aware's log files provide details on what processes are running on your system, plus information on any potential spyware found.

Open up your favorite text viewer and browse to the following directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\[YOUR_USER_NAME]
\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Logs

From here you can choose which log file to open, depending on the date of the scan.

Return to the Ad-Aware page.
