    Default Define "Fix Selected"

    Hi,
    I am quite new to Spybot 2.4. I used 1.6 for a long time.
    At the completion of a scan, is"Fix Selected" equivalent to "Quarantine" That is, are all of the fixed items now quarantined?
    Thanks

    Default Define Fix selected

    Tashi,
    There is no mention of fix selected in the FAQ section of the referenced tutorial.
    The tutorial does not go into fix selected or quarantine. It is very difficult to follow because of the speakers lack clarity and accent.

    Hello Frank C,

    Fix selected means the items are removed.
    How do I use the quarantine feature?

    If you want to restore previously removed files for whatever reason you can do this via the Quarantine module. Quarantine can be either launched via the Start Center or can also be found in SDTray’s program list.
    Just right click on the Spybot – Search & Destroy icon in your system tray beside the Windows clock and navigate to “Basic Tools“ → “Quarantine“. Once “Quarantine“ has been started feel free to select the product you want to restore and hit “Restore selected“.
    If you want to get rid of fixed entries permanently just hit the purge selected button.

    Should I be deleting EVERYTHING showing in Quarantine?
