File History Lists

Recommended Posts

Hi,

If you click on History, you will get a window of five History Lists:

1. Default

2. Clean File History

3. Quarantined File History

4. Scan History

5. All File Events

These lists (log files) are growing bigger and bigger for every day!

For me these log files are pretty useless, but I can not remove their contents.

How to clear these log files?

Cheers,

sweidre

All history information is stored in (c:\Program Files)\Immunet\history.db. Deleting this file is not recommended, as this will break Immunet's Retrospective technology (i.e. the ability for the Immuent Cloud to quarantine/restore files that were previously scanned and determined to be viral/safe but were actually False Positives/False Negatives).

 

This has not been fully tested, and may break other things as well so proceed at your own risk. If anything goes wrong please uninstall (make sure to choose *no* to the question about re-installing immuent later at the end of the uninstall) and re-install.

 

1) net stop immunetprotect

2) delete ...\Immunet\history.db

3) delete ...\Immunet\Quarantine\*.* (you should empty quarantine directory if your going to delete the history)

4) net start immunetprotect

or restart your computer.

Hi RobT,

Thanks for your info. I noticed, that in the path C:\Program Files\Immunet Protect\ I have the following:

Big files:

a.) cache.db 5,018 kB (Can I clear this file now & then?)

b.) history.db 5,157 kB (OK, I will keep this file as per your post above!)

c.) historyex.db 2,031kB (Can I clear this file now & then?)

Big Directories

A.) 2.0.17 consisting of only one huge file: agent.exe.log 120,017 kB (Can I delete this directory for good, as it is from an old version?)

B.) 3.0.0 15,890 kB, whereof agent.exe.log 151 kB (This directory I will not tough, because I use version 3.0.0. now!)

C:) Clamav 42,977 kB (I am not using ClamAV. Can I delete the whole directory?)

D:) Quarantine 0 kB (Will be kept!)

E.) tetra 1,816 kB (I am not using the Plus version. Can I delete this directory?)

F.) update 108 kB (Will be kept!)

 

The questions in bold I would like to have answered, please! (I will use only the pure cloud-based version and not store any ClamAV or Tetra virusdatabases in my computer, because I will use Immunet as a second opinion only to my ESET Smart Security - NOD32)

Cheers,

sweidre

Does anyone know what sort of database this is?

If it's an SQLite database then you could use the tools on http://sqlite.org/ to delete the bits that you don't want.

If you just want to look at the database, Spybot have a handy tool at http://forums.spybot...loads.php?id=21

Hi ataraxy,

In my mind, I think, that Immunet staff (administrators) should in writing (FAQ, Tutorial, Manual, or Guide) officially issue instructions how to cleanup log files etc.!

Cheers,

sweidre
