AVAST POPUP HISTORY LOG LOCATION PLEASE :)

Where is the Avast Popup History Log Location, name, etc.

Need access to previous POPUP HISTORY for security concerns.

Avast Free Antivirus 2015

Thanks!  :)

Hi jstm3 :)

There is no pop-up history log.
But you can always find the last popup message by right-clicking on the Avast taskbar icon, and select Show last popup message.

Hi Red,

Thanks, I see that now.

However, when there's been multiple Security Popups what should one do in determining if it merits further investigation them further?

I simply would feel more at ease I some how I could have a historical record of these.

Thanks!

Depends what they are, if just a url block i guess no need if you dont own the website.
And if avast have detected/removed files result should be in chest (quarantine)
There is also a log folder at  c:\program files\avast ....

Two areas to look at the Web Shield log (for web related alert) and the file system shield log (for local system alerts).

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AVAST Software\Avast\report WinXP OS location.
or
C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\report Win7 and later OS location.
