a quick question a bout Quarantined Files

Virus Scan quarantined a truck load of files on me. I don't know what all was infected but all shortcuts from everywhere seemed to disappear.

After I did a restore everything appears normal, but all the quarantined files are still there.  Is it safe to delete all of them now without losing what I recovered.

You must have a suspect browser.  Make sure the machine is totally up to date and ask Technical Support this question.

I would recommend consulting Tech Support before deleting those files. Please let me know the location of those quarantined items based on which we can validate their authenticity.
