Okay, so the first time I ran the Dr.Web CureIt thing, my computer shut off on me and all if the info was lost. The second time, it ran through with half the infected files moved/detected. Now I have it opened and I got to the whole saving part. I couldn't figure out how to get it to save to my desktop without moving the log, which I need to close dr.web to do. I try opening the log to make sure it's saved right, and there is two seperately named files where the log should be, none of which is the log (I saved it just like you said) and when I find how to change where the log file saves to, then change it, every time I save it, it just gives me a blank notepad. What did I do wrong? I followed the steps in order, so where did I go wrong? Here is what I did, step for step, as I read the instructions:
1. Scan finished, so I went up to the file > save report log
2. Opened the original save location (the folder) and found no file named log or anything like that.
3. Opened first of two notepad documents found in that folder. First one froze my computer trying to load.
4. Opened second of two notepad documents. This one was empty.
5. Went to Change setting > Log file and changed the address bar to %USERNAME%\Desktop\Log-file. If this is incorrect, please tell me. Windows 7 creators felt it was in some way smart to make it impossible to find how to write correct file locations.
6. Opened the document on my desktop, now called "Log-file"
7. Document was false as well. Now writing this post.
Is it normal for this whole process to take eight hours, anyway?
EDIT: I forgot to mention that the second file I opened that was blank, was the drweb file you mentioned in your instructions. So... I guess it either had nothing to report, or something went wrong here.
