Would it be better for my real time protection to block malware or quarantine?

Would blocking it from execution be better, or quarantine when detected?

Both should have the same outcome, however a software block on execution may not be persistent and could possibly execute again on a reboot!


By habit, I will quarantine, then delete.


It also largely depends on the malware script embedded in your registry, some have the ability to regenerate after a reboot, even after they have been quarantined and deleted.
