    Im using the Virus Protection program through AOL. Every week they do a weekly scan ,and recently it came back that a Trojan Virus was blocked with the option to delete.

    Should i also delete the file or just keep it as blocked so that particular Virus will always stay blocked?

    Hi Id click to delete it.
    That way it shouldn't return.
    I have no knowledge of the Virus protection from AOL so cannot say how effective it is.
    Although in this case it's done it's job.

    Hi if you click block..what's to stop it from returning?
    It's only being blocked on that occasion.
    Blocked or Delete you do not want it on your system.
