Lavasoft Ad-Aware Logs

by zeebell / February 2, 2006 9:07 AM PST

My system configuration:
Compac Presario
Processor - 2.40 gigahertz AMD Athlon64
Memory - 512 MB
200 GB hard drive

My operating system:
Windows XP w/SP2

As you can see, I'm cleaning house this evening. Guess I'm getting ready for the big 2/3 event -- I sure hope not!

Anyway, while in Explore I found many files which are the logs of my Lavasoft Ad-aware scans. There are probably 100 of the files dating back to the day we bought our PC on August 18, 2005.

Is it necessary to retain these files? Can I just delete say all but the last month or week?

Julea, Delete Them If You Wish...

The Default logfile storage area on Windows XP is: "C:\Documents and Settings\Yourusername\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\Logs". You can safely delete all the .log files inside that folder. New ones will be created the next time you scan..I WOULD NOT delete the entire folder, just it's contents.

Hope this helps.

So far I have not found a need for those logs so I just turn the feature off.

If you would like to do such a thing, open ad-aware and click on the gear.

There is an option there to control logging.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
