SUMMARY: Manage log files created by Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, either browsing them for scan details or removing them to save hard drive space.
After performing a malware scan with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, a log file is created and opened via Notepad (or your default text editor). This displays detailed scan information such as the type of scan, number of infections, and details about each infection (if any).
You may want to examine a particular log file later, for example to determine if a particular infection is repeating. Or, to save hard drive space, you may wish to delete the oldest log files or all of them. To manage these files from within Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, do the following:
1. From Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, click the "Logs" tab.
2. To open a log file, just double-click the file you wish to open. Or, click a log file and then the "Open" button.
To delete a log file, just click a file you wish to remove and then the "Delete" button. You will not be prompted to confirm your decision.
To delete all log files, click the "Delete All" button.
