Delete .db files as well they say delete all files
It's a known issue, when there are too many the deletion jams up. You can physically remove them from within the Windows environment.
First double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter
Click Navigation (top right)
Click General Settings & Alerts (left)
Click Access Protection to expand that section
Uncheck Access Protection and click Apply
Leave SecurityCenter open on your desktop because you should re-enable Access Protection after the following steps.
Go to C:\ProgramData\McAfee\VirusScan\Quarantine and click Edit/Select All
Click Shift and Delete simultaneously and the folder should empty.
Take care to delete only the contents of that folder, not the folder itself.
Re-enable Access Protection as mentioned above and click Apply and then exit SecurityCenter.
Those instructions are for Vista/Windows 7.
So the .db file will get recreated then?
what about the file mcqt.txt, whats that all about?
Sorry no idea does opening it say anything?. My quarantine folder empty bar 1 small .db file
mcqt.txt the contents of which is only mcqt.txt
leave what as is?
I have already got rid of the bup file and I guess the the .db files relates to the .bup and should go as well.
There is also a large text file OAS.log under VirusScan/Logs which seems to be a list of items in the Quarantine directory.
WE have only been told to delete whst is in the quarantine folder
