Hi guys!

My PC Guard has just quarantined 2 viruses in the space of 4 minutes. Is it ok to delete them? Or should I restore them?

Thanks in advance,

Hi onedaymyfriend,

If you restore a virus you are putting it back onto your computer where it can do what it was made to do ie. destroy your data etc.

If you leave it in quarantine it cannot harm your computer.

Hope this helps.
