I have Windows Vista, and i just found out my Spy Sweeper has quarantined Trojan.gen and Trojan-Agent.gen. Although they are quarantined, should i need to worry about them?? Should i delete? [It does not say what file they are in or have infected, just under quarantine list] I don't want to delete and find out that it infected a file i need.

Any help??

Eehm,hello? If it quarantined, then file(s) was lockdown..NO access..They are moved,quarantined,password-protected - if some AV's scan pc they dont found virus...So dont worry.Of course you can delete it by remove button

As ~PrEmIuM~ said, once a file is quarantined, it has no access to your system.
You can leave it in there as long as you want.
If after a couple of weeks you notice no problems, it should be safe to delete.
