Hello,

I need help I've been searching for hours but I just can't find the logfiles. I'm using windows 8. Can anyone tell me where the logfiles are ?

The McLogs are only readable by Technical Support, however some logs are available through SecurityCenter itself.

Open SecurityCenter

Click Navigation

Scroll down and click Quarantined and Trusted Items to read what the last scan quarantined, if anything.

You can also click Security Report and/or Security History at the left for further reports.

What is it you are looking for?

Thanks !

I was looking for the logfiles because McAfee found a trojan.

You can find logs at this location  - %programdata%\McAfee\VirusScan\logs (eg: C:\programdata\McAfee\VirusScan\logs)
