Removing quarantined items in Norton Antivirus Corporate edition

HI,

I have a computer running Norton Antivirus Corporate edition  ver. 8.1.0.825 and it had found 2 viruses. The problem is that the program quarantined the viruses but did not remove them.

I could not find an option to delete these files. (They are not needed)

Does anyone know how to delete quarantined NAV Corp. editon files ?

There is an option for this in the standard version of NAV but that does not seem to apply here.


Thanks,

Daryl

Hi

Logon to the PC with an admin account. Open the Symantec AV Client - Expand the view menu - Then click on quarantine. Right click on the quarantined file and then select "Delete Permanently". This should do the trick.

Thanks for the commenst (Lobo) & (Deb).  One question though, will these respective procedures delete all future viruses automatically or will I have to perform the above procedure each time I want to remove the viruses from the quarantined area ?

I was hoping to have NAV delete any viruses if finds on the machine rather than keep them.


Thanks,

Daryl

Hi

In that case you need to change the setting in sav for how it deals with viruses when it detects them. Try configuring both realtime protection options and scans. You can do this either directly on a client or via the system centre console. You just need to sepcify that rather than quarantining a file you set it for deletion. Usually it attempts to repair the file first, then quarantines it or deletes it depending on the options you choose. It also depend on if there's a quarantine server that's been configured ot not. I can't get access to the console right now to talk you through it, but could do so at a later date,
