. Deleting the logs may be suspicious in itself. I'd do a little more Googling and see if I could figure out how to remove unwanted entries. If you're lucky, it will be a plain text file. . As for where the log file(s) is located, I'd first look in \Program Files\Webroot\ (or something similar to Webroot, may be in a folder with the company name) and then the misc Documents and Settings folders. If you can find out the name of the log file, then Start:Search ought to find it. A little creative Googling should turn something up. . Might try searching for *.log, but that will probably bring up a big hit list. Maybe something like *.wrt, *.wbr, or *.wrl

Or, right click the icon, and click on "properties" and then "find target" and most of the files should be located therein.

. Doh! That is just a tab bit simpler, isn't it? That should lead to the program directory, which may contain the log.

. Googling "webroot spyware" turns up several hits that look useful.
