Do threats that are moved to Quarantine remain there indefinitely or does the program delete them automatically at some point?  I know they can be manually deleted by the user but curious about an automatic function at some point.

Staff will correct me if I am wrong, but AFAIK (and according to the User Guide), items remain safely in Quarantine until the user either manually deletes or restores them. 


The major exception to this behavior would be performing a Clean Reinstall of MBAM, which will also permanently delete all the items that are in Quarantine.


Generally, if the item has been in Quarantine for 30 days or more, with no negative impact on the system, it's probably safe to delete it.
