Working with quarantined objects

The quarantine of Kaspersky Internet Security lets you perform the following operations:

  • quarantine the files that you suspect of being infected;
  • scan and disinfect all potentially infected quarantine objects using the current database of Kaspersky Internet Security;
  • restore files to a specified folder to source folders from which they were moved to quarantine (by default);
  • delete any quarantined object or group of objects;
  • send quarantined objects to Kaspersky Lab for analysis.
