What SPL to use to detect when two conditions happen with a time difference?



I have some antivirus events that shows anti-malware action failed. 

With this I am trying to create an spl to identify when anti-malware action failed on a host but also wait for the next 12 hours to see if that action has changed. If it has not change it should generate results, otherwise it should not. 

I know the last part could be done with an if but I am not sure how to do de time part.


Thanks for the help

Thank you @richgalloway 
I appreciate the help.


Search over the previous 12 hours and count the number of times the condition occurs for each host.  If the count is two or more then generate results.

<<your search for failed actions>> earliest=-12h
| stats count by host
| where count>=2
