    Threat Removed or Restored


    Hello!


    I have windows 10.


    I was notified by windows security of a threat upon opening a file from an external device. Soon after which it was placed in quarantine. After viewing the options, I selected the option 'remove' and NOT 'allow'. However, few minutes later did I realize I had apparently 'allowed' the threat!


    I immeadiately got onto selecting the option 'remove' once again, the only option if I am not mistaken no quarantine option.


    And now in my protection history, I am left with this, as seen in the image.

    Does the threat removed or restored mean it is no longer present in the system?

    or it is still lingering behind?


    I would definitely need some help in solving this matter

    :)

  2. WINDOWS DEFENDER IS NOT REMOVING THREATS

    Hello PaulPChou,

    This one works. You're correct I chose removed but it just doesn't remove the threats it says working and after working the threats are still listed. I ran the safety scanner, reboot, scan in safe mode, scan in clean boot but neither of those works to remove
    the listed threats.

    Just as I thought all I need is to manually delete the file where it contains the threats list just like a log file.

    Thanks for providing the path where it stores the list.

    Best regards,

    Lelouch

    Threat detection Options confusion

    Hello,

    I had a virus on my PC and windows defender quarantined it.

    But I clicked on the “Action” button and has three options: Removes , Restore , and Allow

    I clicked on Remove, but the threat status changed to: “threat removed or restored “

    Which is confusing.

    I then clicked again on the “Action” button and only 1 option appeared which is “ Allowed” I mistakenly Clicked on. But then I removed it from the “ allow history “

    So my question:

    • does allowing a “ removed or restored” threat means releasing it again in the PC or it means only allowing the future similar threat?
    Because I run a scan after i removed it from allow history and nothing is detected.

    I’m very confused. I would appreciate help.

    My threat was : worm win32/bundpil. “Two letter “
