    What will happen with a virus or trojan or spyware,that is picked up through out a scan,and is put away in quarantine.
    My question is now ,if I uninstall this scan program ,coming these trojans or spyware ,back in the computer.
    Mabey a not to clever question,but that's what I want to know.

    Thanks for your answer.

    Hello Jacko2,

    If malware is quarantined within a program, I would delete those files before uninstalling the antimalware program. That should take care of the malware.

    I think quarantine works like a recycle bin and if I remember right that on some machines where I have uninstalled the AV/AS it may ask at uninstall what to do with any quarantined items.
