Microsoft Safety Scanner says it partially fixed a file. How do I find out which file it fixed?

Is there anything in the system or application event log – uSlackr May 31 '11 at 16:04

Microsoft Safety Scanner apparently saves a log file of everything it does. Opening it up in Notepad should let you see what it did and to what file.

The log file is located at %SystemRoot%\debug\msert.log.
