    Default How do I delete the virus?

    I've got 4 virus on my computer; 4 Trojan and 1 worm. How do I delete those ones? Because they're only on quarantine, so they're not deleted? And there's one virus; a Trojan that isn't querantined. What do I have to do? I'm scared T_T

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    What are their names and file locations on the drive? Write down for reference.

    If thse are in querantine, these are being held and are helpless. These should be not released but deleted by the AV. What is the name of the troyan not caught and what is it's file location?

    If deleted and it's gone, then don't worry about it. It's gone.
    But next time find the file on the drive and get the exact file name, and file location not just the name the AV gives it. And write the file name and location down for reference.
    Do another scan and make sure the beastie is completely gone.

    I have another question: If the virus is quarantined, do I still have to delete it
    or scan my computer?

    Quarantine means it is held but not removed.
    Best to remove it.

    Restore means to let it go back to where it was or it will be "restored" to it's former self.

    Remove or delete means erase the file.

    I do not use the ZA antivirus and just use the ZA antispyware versions, so I am going by generally.

    If still stuck, open the ZA and hit the F1 key. In the Help is some better descriptions and explainations.
