Viewing or Deleting Logs

You may view any log file by clicking the log to select it, then clicking the View Report button. As mentioned previously, there are several output options for Protection Logs. To delete logs, click the checkbox corresponding to those logs you wish to delete, then click the Delete button. Please bear in mind that computers with significant threat activity will also have larger logs. You should periodically check how much disk space is being used for logs, so that logs do not impact normal operation of your computer.

Please note that an Export button is shown at the bottom left corner of this screen. This allows you to make a copy of the log for use by other programs. You may export to your clipboard or to a text (TXT) file.
