The system that I support recently came under attack and we were tasked to review the logs.  I was tasked to conduct Q-TIP scans and review the log-tip files, yet I've never done either before. 
What software would I use to review Q-TIP scans?

What does Q-TIP scan for?

Based on the description provided in that link I would recommend using tools like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, AdwCleaner and JRT (Junkware Removal Tool) which also create logs.

However, you may want to double-check with the person who asked you to perform this task...I never heard of this software.
