Sorry to bump this post but does anyone have any ideas on my problem? If this is the wrong forum for my issue, then let me known where I should move my post.
That's a little strange.. If you can "see" and access the files from your "Recent" list, you should be able to save them to your desktop by saving them after you access them.. Or can't you "see" the actual file?.. The "Recent" list is only a "shortcut" to the previously visited file and doesn't mean the file still exists.. On the other hand, if the files were actually "Quarantined", it may be possible to restore them by using the "Quarantine" features in VS 8.5i. ("Quarantine Manager Policy" in the VirusScan Console.) Still, if they were "Quarantined", they probably weren't actually "Cleaned", then were Quarantined because they couldn't be "cleaned' in the traditional meaning of the word. I'm guessing if they were Quarantined and you restore them, then will still be detected as "infected".
If the files were infected and McAfee cleaned them, they are frequently lost.. Although cleaning does "save" some files occasionally, the infection normally corrupts the file sufficiently to make them unusable.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Grif, I've just decideed to bite the bullet and format the memory stick. B.null
