When Malwarebytes for Windows executes on-demand scans, scheduled scans, and Real-Time Protection events, some files may be categorized as threats. These files get removed from the disk location where they are quarantined and can no longer harm your device. There may be quarantined items that are not malicious which you want to keep.
To choose items you want to keep or remove, follow these instructions:
- Open Malwarebytes for Windows.
- Click the Detection History card.
- In the Quarantined items tab, check the boxes of the items you want to restore or delete.
- Click the Restore or Delete button. Deleting the items permanently removes them from your device.
