The files are now encrypted and held within a special folder in McAfee.
Open the SecurityCenter by double-clicking the taskbar icon
Click Advanced Menu (bottom)
Click Restore (left)
Click Files (top left)
You should be able to remove all the quarantined files there. That will delete them altogether.

Thanks for the response. How do I get the scan to read the critical files on drive E ?
I chose custom scan and scanned only drive E and noticed that it still went ahead
and scanned all the critical/system/rootkit, etc. files on drive C before starting to
scan E. I did not see the message about scanning for critical files on E.
Also, once I delete the quarantined files, can I move the disk back to my old
system and reboot or do I need to transfer the contents before I try
That's the way it works I'm afraid. Although when I open up Computer and right-click any folder on a drive other than C: that's all it scans on my machine.
You must be setting the scan from within the SecurityCenter itself.
As I have no idea what you have on drive E: I can't really say but if you quarantined some files and then deleted them then I see no reason why you can't put it anywhere you want.
Thanks for the quick response.
The E drive is the system/boot disk from my old system. It has Windows XP and other files. So mcfee virus scan should look/scan
drive E just like as it scans drive C on the new system.
