      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

should i quarantine or delete ?

3 posts in this topic

tried to find if this question is answered in FAQ, but did not find anything relevant.

i am curious why when i use AVG antispyware to scan my computer, the default strategy of protection is

to quarantine the infected files, but not to delete it. can i choose to delete the infection instead of quarantine the infection ? thanks

We suggest quarantine since it is possible for AVG AS to accidentally remove a legit file and you can restore it more easily if it is quarantined... Also, sometimes we need samples of files to analyze, but usually that wouldn't be true with AVG AS since those files are generally already known...

And as far as the infection goes, it amounts to the same thing since the files in quarantine cannot execute. You can delete them from quarantine when you are sure you won't want to restore them.
