The scan tool puts items in quarantine that it thinks cannot/should not be deleted, or is attached to important files. They are supposedly inoculated, so as not to be contagious. Then you can run your computer to make sure there is no damage and those files are not needed. If they are not, you can go ahead and delete them.
There are many strains out there that are well hidden and self replicate. Most viruses today will take more than one scan tool

Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
