About quarantine

As Webroot SecureAnywhere scans and shields your computer, it removes all items associated with threats from their current locations. It then disables their operation and moves them to a holding area, called quarantine. While in quarantine, threats can no longer harm your computer or steal your information.

Your safest action is to keep items in quarantine until you have a chance to test your computer and determine if all programs still work properly after the scan. If you discover that some legitimate programs cannot function after an item was moved to quarantine, you can restore the item to its original location.

To view and manage quarantined items, click PC Security and the Quarantine tab.
