I just ran a full scan. It took over 6 hrs and I wanted to keep a log of what it found, how many files were scanned and what was done, but I couldn't see where to do that. Are previous scan reports archived, or Is there a log kept somewhere?

However, this is an “internal events” log, which doesn’t include the results of manual scans (“Scan now” scans), context-menu scans, or command-line scans, and the MpCmdRun.log file doesn’t contain the wealth of information that’s available in the
System Event Log:
1.) Open Event Viewer by typing “eventvwr” (or just “event”) in the search box and hitting the “Enter” key.
2.) Expand “Windows Logs” and click on the “System” folder.
3.) Click on the “Filter Current Log…” option in the “Actions” pane or “Action” menu.
4.) Select “Microsoft Antimalware” as the Event source and enter the relevant Event IDs from the list below, separated by a comma.
5.) Click on “Save Filter to Custom View” and name the Custom View.
The next time you open Event Viewer, simply expand “Custom Views” and click on the desired Custom View.
