Your quarantine feature is garbage
« on: August 15, 2022, 11:50:58 PM »
What a f**king embarrassment. I was trying to play a game, but your wonderful little antivirus popped up and gave me a warning of a malicious file. "Sure, if Avast says it's malicious, I better trust them". F**king nope. All it did was brick the game because it for some reason thought it was a virus. Good job. But all I gotta do is remove the files from quarantine and I'll be good to go, right? F**king nope again, because I can't remove the files from quarantine for some reason. What a joke, I'll be switching antivirus because f**k you and your application.

Presumably when restoring form quarantine you didn't use the option to Restore and add exception or send it for analysis.  Or you could also have used the Send for analysis option. But you didn't say what you did.

Good luck with whatever AV you choose.
