if a virus/trojan has been detected by an AV and "quarantined" or "jailed" what does this mean? - it implies that it hasn't removed it from the system. what has the AV done with it? - i.e the reg entries, the exec, the dll, other files associated with the virus. how does windows view all this? if the AV is then uninstalled does this mean the virus/trojan is free to continue it's naughty work?
