    when i was browsing the internet, McAfee told me a bunch of viruses have been detected and deleted. it told me to do a scan so i am right now. but it found 3 viruses/trojans on my computer so far. VBS/Psyme and Exploit-Mhtredir.gen are the infected in the temp internet files folder. can't i just do a disk clean up and get rid of them that way? thanks!

    *update* completed virus scan and 3 were infected (the above mentioned) and 1 was cleaned. should i delete the last 3, or quarantine them? if i try to delete them will it destroy any information/windows?? thanks!

    *edit*ok im still staring at the option to delete or quarantine the files. i heard that deleting a trojan is a no-no. please help, just a "yay" or "nay" will do......
