Hi-ya--

I'm using Ad Aware 6.0. On three occasions I have run the program after working on the net and have culminated a total of 168 items in quarantine ( in separate files -- where's the time to figure out what to do when there is work to do & I can kid myself into thinking I can do something with it all "later." At the moment I see 11 items in the Quarantine list -- the latest. Not panicking yet!)

I'm just looking -- so far for some guidance on how to interpret the results, what to do with them, how to choose between what's objectionable, necessary or what-not. I read the help files, how to use their tools, but I feel a bit shy on how to discern between "should do," "shouldn't do,""could do, if certain."

I know that when the stove is hot, don't touch it. I feel like i keep trying the same part of a hot stove, wondering if it is "still hot." Of course, this make leery of any cold stoves -- I figure that I'm too much of a novice to know crap about hot or not!

$teve gave a good explanation, I just want to add this: The quarantine is just for safety reasons,when cleaning with those type of scanners they go deep into the system and edit. IF something should go wrong , you have a chance to return. But if the system works flawlessy after the scan , there´s no need to keep the quarantine and it coud be deleted.

Die Hard :)
