View the log for Sophos Live Protection

The file data sent to Sophos for online scanning and file status updates after the scanning is complete are recorded in the scanning log for this computer.

If Sophos Live Protection is enabled, the log shows:

  • The path of each file for which data was sent to Sophos.
  • The time when the data was sent.
  • The reason for failure (if known) if sending the data failed.
  • The current status of the file (for example, “virus/spyware” if the file has been identified as malicious).
To view the scanning log:
  • On the Home page, under Anti-virus and HIPS, click View anti-virus and HIPS log.
