Quarantine folder

Go to solution Solved by Marcos,

Recommended Posts

I went to the Quarantine folder on my pc (C:\Users\<myuser>\AppData\Local\ESET\ESET Security\Quarantine), And it just came to my mind that maybe going into the folder might cause the viruses get spread (if there are).

I didn't open any of the files but I did a scan to  those files on my eset (home security premium version).

so it could got spread or not ?

Quarantined files are stored in an encrypted form so there is no chance you could run malware by going to a quarantine folder and double-clicking a file.
