Hi, was wanting to know what happens to quarantined items if you remove/uninstall the program that has them quarantined?

Some files get deleted with the program, some remain in a seperate folder after the uninstall but as far as I know none will ever get back out when you uninstall the program.

Learning to use a program and cleaning items out of quarantine after confirming they were malware is important.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Thx DaChew,

Ok so once they are quarantined, and possibly left in a folder after the software got uninstalled, can they still be found by other scanners so that I can deal with them if there is any left on my system?

Once the antimalware software is uninstalled, it's up to you to delete any quarantine folders

Budapest may have wanted a night off, every now and then we volunteer helpers feel a need for that.
