Check a quarantined item?


Recommended Posts

I just ran a full scan with MBAM 1.38, Database Version 2387, and it found a file that it reports as a Spyware Agent, reference #17429. The file is CP_setup.exe. It was in a folder that I have set aside for program installers. It's location in that folder suggests that I've had it in there a long time -- shortly after I made that folder I changed the way I stored things, but didn't go back and rearrange the old programs -- this one was not stored in my "new" format, so I believe it's a couple years old. I can't remember exactly what it is, but I think it installs an onscreen "scientific calculator" program. A few years ago I tried out several freeware calculators before I settled on one.

I had just run a moderate scan with Avast! last night and a thorough scan over the weekend and neither scans picked this up. I don't remember offhand how long ago I ran a full MBAM scan.

Anyway, I put the file in quarantine. MBAM finished up and rebooted.

What I'd like to know is, what do I really have in quarantine? Can I submit it for analysis?

Some additional info. I update and run a Quick Scan on a daily basis. The last time I ran a full scan was May 21. I think this file was there at the time (I don't think I put any installers in that folder in the past two months). The May 21 scan didn't report anything.

Thanks. I restored it and ran in Developer mode. I put it back in quarantine, just to bhe safe.
