Threat Found - Error while deleting


Recommended Posts

The screen shots below shoe my version of ESET and the problem I am getting. 

ESET keeps showing this same problem file but will not delete it. What's wrong?

There's probably a permission problem. I assume that you are unable to delete it manually too?

I overlooked that the file was detected in a mailbox (mbox) container. It is not possible to clean files in archives or containers.

You can delete INBOX.mbox manually but probably you'll need to do it with root permissions.

I don't know how to delete with "root permissions".

Is this something I have to worry about? Do I need to change any settings in ESET?
