Do deleted Quarantine files continue to be flagged for deletion?

Recommended Posts

Recenlty, SAS quarantined Quicken (qw.exe) as a problem and I mistakenly deleted the file from quarantine. I have re-installed Quicken and SAS does not flag it as a problem any longer but every time I reboot my system the qw.exe file is deleted from the Quicken folder so I was wondering if SAS somehow continues to mark the file for deletion? Any ideas? Anyone else ever seen anything like this? Thanks for any info you can provide.

SOLVED! Thanks to Don Fowler. As it turns out, Superantispyware had flagged qw.exe as a false positive and even though I removed qw.exe from quarantine and re-installed Quicken, apparently Superantispyware maintains a "hidden" list of quarantined files to be removed on start up. The solution was to completely uninstall and re-install Superantispyware to get rid of the "hidden' list.

PS This was quite tricky to diagnose because within a few days of Superantispyware flagging qw.exe, the false positive had been corrected and future scans revealed no issues.
