    Hello!
    NOD32 v 2.7 found TrojanDownloader.Agent.Jn trojan and stored it in quarantine. Does it mean that the file won't be executed? How can I delete it from my PC? Can I use NOD 32 tools for it?
    Thank you.

    No the files are ineffective and cannot cause anymore harm for you.

    Go here and delete away:

    C:\Program Files\ESET\infected

    Hi,

    in quarantine choose delete and all will be ok. But when file is located in quarantine, it isn't functional. ;)

    Hello,

    When NOD32 quarantines a file it makes an encrypted copy of the file leaving the original file in place. To quarantine a file is not an action in itself, it's the result of an action.

    If the action that was performed on the file wasn't "Delete" or if the file was in an area NOD32 could not remove it from, the threat is still on the machine and will have to be deleted manually.

    BFG
