Eyeblaster cookies?

Hi guys, I'm using a Windows Vista and have McAfee Total Protection.

I ran a complete scan and when I viewed the report, it told me that I had 3 Trojan viruses that were 'quarantined' and also 4 other viruses that go by the name 'Eyeblaster-Cookies' which cannot be repaired for some reason. Few things I would appreciate knowing:

1. I went to the file path of the Trojan viruses and deleted the files. Will this get rid of the Trojans?

2. What does it mean by 'quarantined'?

3. How can I remove the 'Eyeblaster-Cookies'? There are software online to do this but now I am worried that I will end up downloading more viruses.

4. Is the 'Eyeblaster-Cookies' harmful? Should I not go on certain websites such as Internet Banking?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Eyeblaster cookies?

Hello,

In answer to question 1: If the files were put into quarantine, then they would no longer show up on your system- so which files did you delete.

In answer to question 2: The files are in isolation, much like in a hospital, it presents no harm to your system. I have currently 18 files in quarantine.

In answer to question 3: Ccleaner will remove cookies, this link is clean.
