During my last virus scan, I checked the progress of the scan. In the bubble text above the scanning icon on task bar, the summary said Fixed: 0 and Quarantined: 2. I checked the Quarantined folder and noticed several quarantined (.bup) files since the beginning of the year. In other posts, a Quarantine Manager was mentioned, but I have not been able to locate it in Security Center. I am running the full suite, Total Protection 2009, and do not access Virusscan directly. There are not a lot options available. Reports & Logs did not show anything relevant either. If I had not checked progress, I would not have been aware of this. If there had been a pop-up warning, it did not stay until I saw it and clicked okay to close. Is there somewhere I could turn this on if available?
Files are quarantined when they cannot be fixed. What should I do about them? Send them to McAfee? I would not trust a regular Windows delete to the Recycle Bin. I have an Incineration program with a Dept of Defence rating. Would this be sufficcient to get rid of them?
Also, I noticed the last two files (presumably the 2 quarantined files) were 73 mb. What kind of malware would that be? Two backup (.bup) files were created at 3:20pm and again at 4:53pm.
