When Malwarebytes for Windows blocks a website or exploit on your computer, or a Real-Time Protection detection happens, the event is logged and a report created. You can review the details of each Malwarebytes scan, and what threats were found, if any. Scan reports are stored up to the last 30 days. You can view the scan reports in the Malwarebytes program, or download the report to your Clipboard or a Text File (.txt) file.
