    Hi all, I've read blackspears tutorial on advanced settings and I thank him for this high quality job.

    If I well understood, quarantine files cannot be deleted but isolated in order for nod32's lab to work on them.
    Is it correct ?

    If yes how to remove those infected/quarantined files ?

    Many thanks for your kind co-operation.
    Tony

    I believe NOD will create an "infected" entry in the Eset program files folder.
    You can delete that entry.

    NOD32 Control Centre/Quarantine: Right click any file in the list and select Delete. You can perform multiple selections using the Windows standard left click with Control or Shift keys.

    It’s a pleasure.


    No, the word Quarantine as used by Eset does not comply with that of any standard dictionary. Quarantine simply makes a encrypted “COPY” of the infected file for further analysis by Eset if you send it to them. It does NOTHING with the original file itself, unless you choose an action, such as delete.

    Hope this helps…

    Cheers :D

    Not really, "make copy for further analysis by Eset" would be far more accurate.

    Cheers :D
