    I was searching the web about macroeconomics and there was a few sites where I went to were I received a red box saying I got a trojan or adware and they ask me if I want to delete, clean, or no action I believe. What is the difference between delete and clean? If you delete it doesn't that mean you cleaned it? If something like this happen in the future what should I do?

    Hello Lakers1!

    AFAIK....
    Delete = the infected file will be completely deleted.
    Cleaned = the infected part of the file is cleaned.

    But I may be wrong ;)
