Where does the Microsoft Safety Scanner store its log files?

Microsoft Safety Scanner finds infected file and says at the end that everything is OK.

When testing the Microsoft Safety Scanner, I got feedback that infected files were reported for some users. At least during the search run. In the end, however, everything was fine.

Of course, this causes uncertainty. As a rule, this is due to false alarms and possibly signatures that resemble a virus in parts. In the end, however, you want to be sure. To do this, you can take a look at the log file of the Microsoft Safety Scanner.

This is stored by default in the folder “c:\Windows\Debug\msertl.log”.
