How to monitor "Antivirus" Event Log

  • I use Avast Antivirus for many of my clients and I would like to monitor the event log for virus infections. If avast finds a virus it writes a warning to a special category called "AntiVirus" under the event viewer. Is it possible to monitor this for warnings? Kaseya seems as if it will only let me monitor the App, Security, And System Logs. Any ideas?

    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: avast!
    Event Category: (4)
    Event ID: 90
    Date: 3/2/2008
    Time: 12:04:54 AM

  • If it creates a standard windows event log on the machine, then you can do it with Kaseya 2008. The Update List by Scan function on the Monitor tab will find the registered Windows event logs on a machine. From there, you can create Event Sets to monitor the event log.

  • We have a program that writes to its own event log other than the std application, security or system logs...is is possible to catch events in this "extra" category?

    thanks
