I have 3 viruses quarantined, what should I do next?

Avira just detected 3 virus and I sent them to quarantine, should I leave them there or should I delete them. If I delete them, will it damage my computer's system?

Here are the 3 viruses:

Filename: C:\Windows\Temp\TMP000000A8A565953D28F68003 (Contains recognition pattern of the ADSPY/Hotbar.A.42 adware or spyware)

Filename: C:\Windows\Temp\BRO6BF.tmp\upgrade.exe (Contains recognition pattern of the DR/Zwangi.KT dropper)

Filename: C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\XQ8I8UCK\upgrade[2].cab (Contains recognition pattern of the ADSPY/Zwangi.KT adware or spyware)

Can somebody please help me :?:

Hi MarieBabePR,
As far as the files are isolated in quarantine, they can not harm your pc.
Keep the files in quarantine and watch how the pc operates.
If all in order, you can delete them later on.

Hi MarieBabyPR,

What was going on at the time of this detection? I assume that you were surfing the internet? If so, these infected files are merely files that your computer has downloaded while browsing the internet, and Antivir has successfully blocked them. Simply empty your internet browser's cache and you should be fine.

If you were doing something else, such as installing a file, I recommend that you take further action, as malware may have been installed on your computer. If this is the case, please say so.

Regards, :)

Hi MarieBabyPR,

Just to add to what has been suggested which I fully agree with, is that you also download ATF form here directly to your desktop it is stand alone so you do not have to set it up. Run it as follows.

1. Double click ATF-Cleaner.exe (dustbin icon) to run the program.
2. Check the boxes to the left of:
3. Windows Temp
4. Current User Temp
5. All Users Temp
6. Temporary Internet Files
7. Now click Empty Selected.
8. When you get the "Done Cleaning" message, click OK.
9. When you have finished, click on the Exit button in the Main ATF Cleaner menu.

Please note that this will remove all files from the items that are checked so if you have some cookies you'd like to save. Then please move them to a different directory first. I would run ATF twice a week just to help keep things cleaned out. (Good house keeping) ;)

Cordialement - Grüße and Regards.
