How to Use Quarantine in Kaspersky


In security programs such as Kaspersky Antivirus, dangerous files are often not removed completely from the computer by default. Rather, they are put into a safe location called the "Quarantine" where they cannot harm the computer, and are left there for further analysis or deletion by the user. Use the Quarantine in Kaspersky to determine what infections have been found and sanitized on your computer.

  • Double-click the Kaspersky icon in the system tray to launch the program.

  • Click the "Quarantine" link at the top of the screen.

  • Click the "Detected Threats" tab.

  • Click the drop-down menu and select "Quarantined" to view the files that are currently in Quarantine. This screen displays the name of each item in Quarantine, when it was discovered, the type of threat and the name.

  • Right click an item that you would like to remove from the computer permanently, and click "Delete from the list." Click "Yes" twice to confirm.

Tips & Warnings

  • Files in Quarantine can also be restored to their original location of you believe that Kaspersky has made a mistake in detecting a dangerous file. Right-click an item in the Quarantine and click "Restore" to replace the file.
