During a quick search avast found and removed a virus on my PC (Win32:Ramnit-DO). After that it I updated the software (today an update came out) and it wanted to do a reboot to make a bootscan which I accepted.
The scan itself took almost 3h to complete. During this I saw the usual outputs (nothing that indicated a virus). But as I have not seen the whole output I tried to look for the logs and thus looked in the folder:
C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Persistent Data\Avast
And there under logs and under reports. Even though I saw logfiles there including aswBoot.txt under reports I did not find any CURRENT logfile. The only current ones being: AvastSvc.log, AvastUI.log and GrimeFighter.log (but nothing shows even the found virus during the quick search.....I only see it when I look into the virus container in the avast menu).
Now my question here is: IS that normal? Or is that something I should be cautious when it happens (aka a behaviour that could point to a virus infection that has affected avast itself already)? Or where do I find the log files I need (aka the bootfile logfiles)
As a note here: As the infected file was an old .dll from a bought program from 3 years back and no further infection was found I'm guessing that it was a wrong alarm from avast but one can't be cautious enough sadly.
