quarantine tab?


Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a question about the Quarantine tab on Malwarebytes.

When items are in Quarantine, are they no longer able to harm the computer?

Is it safe to delete them?

Once they are deleted, are they completely removed from the computer system and can no longer harm them?

Malware only have the ability to perform malicious actions when it is called into memory .

When you quarantine malware with MBAM both its load point and file structure is destroyed rendering it completely dead .

Thank you so much for your response!

I have another question though.

As far as I know, a user has the ability to restore quarantined items. If that is possible, then how can an item be restored if it is completely dead?

Also, would you recommend deleting the items in quarantine?

The same mechanism we use to remove it can restore it if desired. It is best to leave the files in restore for at least maybe a couple days to ensure there are no issues with your system and then if you feel all is okay it should be safe to remove them.
