A potentially unwanted program or PUP is not a virus or malware, just something that the software doesn't recognize and was alerting you to. It would not be put in any quarantine folder.
If you can locate the file right-click it and select "Scan" and it will bring up the same warning.
Thanks for your reply.
The file the alert referred to - Exploit-MIME.c - identified by the alert is
described by McAfee's Virus Profile:
The file is no longer there in the directory it was identified.
I did not select the alert's option to remove it.
I selected "close the alert" planning to evaluate the file - which at
the time I did not know for sure was a virus.
When I looked for it was no longer in the specified directory.
Do you think that VirusScan removed it anyway, or could it have moved?
Not sure to be honest but it was a temporary file (hence "temp" in that address) therefore was most likely deleted once the file went wherever it went.
I'm afraid that is more likely to be explained by Technical Support Chat (linked in my signature or at top left of this page).
