what happens to quarantined malware when you reinstall adaware?

2 posts in this topic

Hi --

 

this may be dumb, but... I recently reinstalled Adaware. A trojan the uninstalled version had recommended I quarantine (this seemed to take two tries, for some reason) no longer shows up in the log.

 

This makes sense, since the log would reset when I reinstalled.

 

But what happens to previously quarantined files when you do a delete/reinstall?

 

BTW, my new version hasn't detected any trojans or other malware.

 

Thanks!

I moved your post since this has nothing to do with False Positives. After reinstall, if the previously quarantined files are not in the quarantine list, chances are they're deleted/overwritten by the new installation.
