Over the years I've used a couple of different programs, McCafee, Norton, Zone Alarm ect...
Obviously during this time all these programs have quarateened suspicious, harmful, and potentially harmful
things and or removed them.
Is it safe to remove these programs using a simple uninstall of either the programs removal or the PC uninstall or another removal tool?
What happens to the items the were quaranteened upon removal of said tools?
In my mind if the program that held them is uninstalled then they could be unleashed unsafely back onto the PC.
Are there specific steps that should be taken to remove the old antivirus programs we no longer use because say..we're now using spybot, Malwarebytes ects?
Much appreciate your response and help.
