Quarantine..?

Unread postby rats19 » February 24th, 2007, 12:11 am

I have 74 virus/Trojans in my quarantine.. With every update Norton tries to fix these but so far it cannot. My question is this: If each time it quarantines a Trojan or virus. does it also remove the file/driver/or whatever it was attached to? If so, does this after a while create issues withing the computer i.e slowing it down, improper running of programs etc...

How does one fix this issue if in fact it is an issue?

thnx for your help

From what I saw without going very deeply into it I would be very suprised if that was the case.
It looked as if it was all stuff that was trying to get onto your computer but never got that far. It was stopped by Norton before it could ever do any damage. That is why it ended up in the quaranine in the first place.
