I want to ask about the chest ?
« on: September 11, 2006, 03:52:51 AM »
Hello !! My name is Carmen,I come from Hongkong, and this is my first time to use antivirus system.
I want to ask after I scanned  my computer, and it show that my computer had some virus and I put that into the chest, but what next ? Should I delete the file or stay the file inside the chest or do something else ?? ???

Please forgive my gammer  ;D

Welcome  8)
File into Chest (Quarentine) are safe to stay there.
You can let them there for 2 or 3 weeks, rescan them into Chest (right click the file) and be sure they're infected.
Then you can delete them...
This is a precaution because system files (necessary to boot and use the computer) or false positives (clean files that was wrong detected as being infected) could happen from time to time and it's safer not to delete the file, but send them to Chest for further analysis.  ;)
The best things in life are free.
