RE: hidden process.a detected

Sorry to take so long to answer....what products are you using Home or Enterprise?

If it is a VirusScan deletion and you are using Home products then double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center.

Click Advanced Menu (bottom left)
Click Restore (left)
Click Files (top left)

Anything quarantined should be in there.

If it's logs you want then click Reports & Logs (left)
Click View Log (right)
Various logs can be read by expanding the menu tree at top left.

If you are using Enterprise then you will have to ask your questions in Corporate here:

If you have Total Protection for Small Business you will have to seek support elsewhere per:
