Add an item to Quarantine

Security History Quarantine provides a safe location on your computer in which you can isolate items while you decide on an action to take on each item.

The Quarantine view in the Security History window displays a list of quarantined items. You can view the name and the risk status of each quarantined item.

You can manually add an item to the Security History Quarantine. You can use the Add to Quarantine option in the Quarantine view in the Security History window to quarantine the items that you suspect are infected. This action has no effect on the items that are already quarantined.

You cannot add a known Good File or a Windows application to Quarantine.

Add an item to Quarantine

  1. In the Norton product main window, double-click Security, and then click History.

  2. In the Security History window, in the Quarantine view, click Add to Quarantine.

  3. In the Manual Quarantine dialog box, in the Description text box, type a short name for the item that you want to add.

    This text appears in the Quarantine, so you should use a recognizable description.

  4. Click Browse.

  5. In the Select File to Quarantine dialog box, browse to the item that you want to add, select it, and then click Open.

  6. Click Add.

  7. In the Security History window, click Close.

Thank you!
