    I use nod32 4

    If I should accidentaly open up quarantine and excluded a virus in that list from ever being detected. Does nod32 keep track of this and can it be reversed?

    I had my quarantine window open en sometimes I blindly mistype outside a text-field. So I'm freakin paranoid right now I might have done something to perhaps select/restore and exclude from scanning a virus/trojan. Bc I counted 46 entries and now it;s only 45 o_O

    It's not possible to exclude malware within Quarantine.

    I see that now. The exclusion option is greyed out in the context menu. But there is a "restore option" available though. What if I accidentaly hit restore because I count 45 threats quarantined instead of 46 I counted rearlier. How will I know which folder or file to scan/delete ?

    (yes I'm an idiot, but help would be appreciated right now)

    Restoration of quarantined files is not logged at all. However, after selecting "Restore" from the right-click context menu, another prompt window with action confirmation will pop up so it's highly unlikely one could restore a file from Quarantine in error.
