I found the following information in the Help Section of M$AS under....

"Spyware Scan: Scan History"

Clear spyware scan history.

To remove the scan history of an individual spyware scan from the history log, select the spyware scan from the list you want to remove. Then in the details section, click on Clear this Spyware Scan History.

Truncate Spyware scan history.

Your spyware scan history may eventually become so large that you might want to truncate the entire scan history log. When you truncate a scan history log you remove all the scan histories from the log except the last scan that was run. To truncate your scan history, click on Truncate Spyware Scan History at the bottom of the scan history list.

Note: if you truncate your scan history you might loose some statistics such as the number of scans run.



Following the Help instructions...

Click on "Tools", "Spyware Scan", "View Spyware Scan History" and you will see your scan history file.

Clicking on "Truncate" (bottom left corner of the open window) will remove the history files.

Should several ignored or quarantined files remain, they can also be removed by clicking on the
toggle located to the right in the window called "Scan Details" which is how one removes
individual files otherwise.

I just accomplished the above and now have a "clean slate"!

:thumbsup:

Your question, but I learned a lot also about the M$AS today too!

On a hunch I uninstalled, rebooted, then reinstalled the M$AS.

This did not clear those two statistical counts either!

I've sent an e-mail to M$ help, but do not expect an answer (Never had a reply
from them on anything else I've queried either.).

Since this is a beta edition, maybe there will be a method to clear all statistics
in the prime release in July. (Hint to M$ programmers :thumbsup: )
