Quarantined

I have a virus that is quarantined, but I'm concerned. I'm wondering, since I have the option, if I can press the 'remove' button.

Because it makes me very nervous just to see that it's there.

Please help.

RE: Quarantined

you can actually remove that from the quarantined items and just remove it...

just put a check on the item and choose remove (lower right) of the quarantined location of mcafee...

RE: Quarantined

You answered my question! Thank you!

One more, however. Should I be concerned about it attacking my computer later?

RE: Quarantined



gald to have helped...

yes there is a possibility... please be careful when you visit webistes e.g. online games, movies, music as this type of infection can automatically get into the system if you install an online game that may have an infection... happy not really sure though of which game... try googling the detected filename to find more information... 🙂

for added protection please try downloading and installing superantispyware @ http://www.superantispyware.com

RE: Quarantined



It won't corrupt McAfee will it?

Just making sure. . .

RE: Quarantined



no... mcafee thogh should be able to detect and quarantine the same file... please make sure that you are always up-to-date with mcafee...

also make it a point that you run a full scan at least twice a week... happy
