How do I clear AVG logs?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To clear AVG logs, follow these steps:

1. Open the AVG user interface by double-clicking on the AVG icon on your desktop or by searching for AVG in your Start menu and selecting the AVG program.
2. Once the AVG user interface is open, click on the ☰ Menu icon in the top-left corner. This will expand the menu options.
3. From the expanded menu, select “Settings.” This will open the AVG settings window.
4. In the settings window, you will see a search icon in the top-right corner. Click on it to open the search box.
5. Type “geek:area” into the search box and press Enter or click on the magnifying glass icon to search.
6. From the search results, you will see “AVG Geek” listed. Click on it to open the AVG Geek settings.
7. In the AVG Geek settings, scroll down until you find the “Scan logs” section.
8. Within the “Scan logs” section, you will see an option called “Clear scan history.” Click on the “Perform” button next to it.
9. A confirmation dialog will appear asking if you want to delete all currently stored scan logs. Click “OK” to proceed with clearing the logs.
10. AVG will immediately delete all the scan logs and clear the history.

It’s important to note that clearing the scan logs will permanently delete the data and you won’t be able to retrieve it afterward. This action is useful if you want to free up space or maintain privacy by removing any trace of previous scans.

Clearing your AVG logs regularly can help ensure that your system is running smoothly and efficiently. It also helps to keep your privacy intact by removing any records of your past scans.

I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or need assistance with any other AVG-related tasks, feel free to ask.
