Managing Detected Threats

Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated PC User Guide.

In most cases, SecureAnywhere automatically detects threats and quarantines the items for you. However, if it detects a potential threat or an item it does not recognize, it prompts you to manage the item.

To manage a detected threat

  1. Do one of the following:
    • If you recognize the filename, next to the item name, deselect the Remove checkbox.
      Do not restore the file unless you are absolutely sure that it is legitimate.
    • If you do not recognize the filename, select the Remove checkbox.
    SecureAnywhere moves the threat to quarantine, where it is rendered inoperable. You do not need to delete it or do anything else.
    After SecureAnywhere moves the threat to quarantine, it launches another scan to make sure your system is clean.
