Yello warning safe?

Recommended Posts

After a scan is completed and threats are found, some threats have a Little red circle with a white line through it, which is automatically checked to quarantine. There is also a threat that has not the red circle but a little yellow triangle with an exclamation point. These are never checked automatically. Are these threats with the yellow safe to quarantine? I have had problems with this exact thing in the past so is it even safe?

Welcome to the SAS forum.

Those items are considered "gray area" malware. It's typically adware bundled with software such as screensaver programs, smilie programs, etc.

I always remove them, but if you're not sure, post the name of the item and we can give specific details.
