Deleting virus files from Quarantine in NIS 2008
Just upgraded to XP/SP3 on wife's laptop and ran full system scan after all that. Two Trojan.ByteVerify instances and one Downloader. Beats me how they got there, NIS 2008 has been on the machine for four months. Anyway they are fully removed and in quarantine. First malware found since we went to NIS 2008 (three laptops, mine, son's and wife's) and I'm nuts or there is no way to permanently delete these trojan/virus malware files from quarantine.
Suggestions? I'm getting ready to backup the HD on that machine and I don't like the idea of stuffing the things on my clean TB external, even compressed or expecially compressed. BTW, deleted the old backup just in case it was there and NIS didn't show it, did a full scan on all the laptops and external drives, even SD cards, all clean except this machine. BTW the other two laptops run Vista Business with NIS 2008, looks good, works fine.
I'm assuming these things were confined and did no damage. No software has been installed on the machine in question in four months, just digital family photo imaging work, email and web browsing. I don't use it but that sounds right. I'm pretty sure wife isn't visiting porn sites intentionally. NIS is downloading updates daily, working fine - or is it? She uses Yahoo mail so who knows.
