          These are in the quarantined and trusted items area  open quarantined and potentially unwanted items and delete them. To get there click on navigation then quarantined and trusted items. This what you want? Or do you want to alter the report?

              There are a virusscan\logs and virusscan\data folder the logs there are editable. In Win 7 they are in programdata\mcafee\virusscan etc

                well you lost me there but if that report doesn't mean that my computer is under attack is it really necessary to reset it , what are the risks for the system?

                      Click on Computer icon on desktop and C drive then Program data etc ie follow your nose. the log file should open with notepad.

                       

                      Another way right click orb bottom left of screen . Click open windows explorer and then Computer on left hand listing then C: then rest as mentioned above.

                       

                      If still a problem will post a pic.
