    Quarantine Question

      Hi folks,


      This is the first time i have used this site so i hope i have posted this thread in the right place.


      i scaned an external hard drive i own with McAfee yesterday.  At the end on the scan it said that there were 2 x threats discovered, and that these 2 x threats had been placed in Quarentine, and my computer was now safe.


      So does that mean that there were 2 x files containing viruses ??  And does it also mean that the 2 x files have been removed from the External hard drive (i am guessing thats whats McAfee has done with them) ??  And so is the external hard drive safe now (as i would like to transfer its contents to my PC ??


      Thanks very much indeed and i appreciate any kind advice.
