  1. It's in ThreatFire. The Threat is called Hidden Folder. It's location is c.\## aswSnx private storage. Threat Status; Detected Risk; High.

    The only choices that I can see to fix it are Select all; which just puts a check mark in the box by the threat. Quarantine, and exclude. I see nothing that will simply remove it I click Quarantine. It runs for a while and completes. as soon as I hit Quarantine status changes fro Detected to processing. But the threat never goes away.I'm worried that it's going to really mess up my PC Because it just stays on processing.
    I shrunk it down to the task bar for about a half an hour. opened it up, and it was still on processing. Why wont it give me the choice to just remove it. Like I said in my Post about Superantisryware. Why would I want to quarantine something when I could just get rid of it?
    Can someone please tell me how to remove the threat? Or better yet tell me it's a false positive Thank you Ray. Oh yea my sensitivity level is 3 bars or default..

    It's been 11 hours since I asked for help with ThreatFire. I was finally able to put the threat in quarantine. I know because all the type turned red.
    What happens next Is there a way I can take it from quarantine,to complete removal?
    Will it eventually change from quarantine to removed? Or will the quarantine end in a while and I'll have the threat all over again? Ray

    Thanks, CAMusing.Got a lot of answers to my problem. Good to know that I'm not the only one that was in a quandary about it . At least two of them just got rid of ThreatFire. I think I'll do the same Ray
