When files are placed in Quarantine by SAS, they have been deleted from their original location, neutralized, and placed in Quarantine. Therefore they are not dangerous to your computer as long as they are in your SAS Quarantine folder. When you remove/delete them from Quarantine, they are safely/totally deleted from your hard drive. I recommend that you leave a file in Quarantine for ~ 1 week just to ensure that the detection was not a False Positive. After a week, remove/delete them from your SAS Quarantine.
