Quarantined item full path

An item was found as threat and put into quaratine. The item name appears as file name but I can't find any way to know the files original location on disk. Is there a way to find out the file's original full path?

Re: Quarantined item full path

You don't state what version you have - 2009 (square icon) or 2010 (shield).

If the latter double-click it to open SecurityCenter

Click Navigation (top right)

Click History and Logs

The path should be given in one of those records - click the little arrow to expand any one detection for more information.

If 2009 I am going to have to look it up as I've forgotten.

Re: Quarantined item full path

I'm using the 2010 version. The log is full of notes about cookies and is not long enough to include the information about real threats detected. Is there a way to make the log longer or, better, make it exclude cookies notices?

thanks for your help so far.

Not in the current version but the suggestion for more information in the logs has already gone forward to McAfee.
