    The help doesn't offer much insight into this option, other than to blow its trumpet. An in-depth scan has this option enabled, but on-access scanning doesn't. Is this big on the CPU impact? Anyone know the detection difference in a real-world scenario?

    It means that the whole archive would be quarantined even if it contained some clean files.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I've always thought of strict cleaning as something for use in a business environment where you don't want people making decisions which could have a negative impact, especially when you can recover from backups etc.
