How to Delete McAfee Quarantined


Files on your computer that are infected with a virus are cleaned, quarantined or deleted with McAfee Virus Scan to protect your computer from further harm. While cleaned or deleted files eliminate the virus, quarantined files are safely stored on your computer to prevent them from being used but are still dangerous. Files are often quarantined if they are essential files for running a program or process, and care should be taken when manually deleting them to prevent a fatal system error.

  • Right-click the McAfee icon on your desktop's task bar found in the lower-right corner of the screen.

  • Move your mouse's cursor to "VirusScan" in the pop-up menu, and click "Manage Quarantined Files."

  • Click the empty checkbox next to "File Name" to highlight all of the quarantined files, or click the empty checkbox next to a specific file to select only the checked item.

  • Click "Delete" at the bottom of the VirusScan window, and click "Yes" to confirm the file deletion. Close out of the VirusScan window once the deletion is finished.
