If you don't want it I would remove it. It's up to you whether or not to send it in.
I'm sorry to bother you but I think I did not ask my previous question correctly.
When a virus is detected and quarantined, is there a right or wrong way to handle it? Or at least a more functional way?
I don't know if quarantine viruses can stay in quarantine indefinetly or if they should be removed as far as safety and functionality are concerned.
I would not want to remove a necessary file and did not know if that happens when you click remove to a virus, or trojan.
Well, sometimes things are quarantined unnecessarily in which case one would follow this stcky: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=228162
But it means you have to a bit of research or ask around about it. But if it's genuinely malware then there is no point leaving it in quarantine. In that case it is best to remove it completely.
Thank you for the referrals.
I will study them as they appear a bit complex yet useful.
