As I recall, vuescan keeps log internal until close, when it is compressed and 
written as a .zip file.  Perhaps Ed would offer an option/patch to write each 
log entry to disk, which then could survive system crash.  A step to try first, 
or in conjunction with assist from Ed: go to My Computer: System Properties > 
File System Properties > Troubleshooting and check "Disable write-behind 
caching for all drives."
