How to access virus scan log file?

Hi, I have McAfee Securitycenter.

After I finish running full scan. I would like to access the log file (preferably .log /.txt , whatever file that allows me to upload to another person), but I do not know where to get hold of it.

The reason is that I need someone to analyse my log file. I tried going to history and logs -> scan information but it doesn't have the exact log file I need that allows me to upload.

Can anyone point to me where to get hold of the file? Thanks.

They are only uploadable using a special tool from McAfee and only McAfee staff can read them or so we have been told.

Ouch... okay then... looks like I have to use another Antivirus to do the job.

Sorry about that.

Any detections would be in the Threats Detected drawer.
