MALWARE reported but cannot quarantine or delete



08 Feb, 2018 01:13 AM

On my "MacWare Disk Clean & Antivirus Report" one item is showing as High Risk but it cannot be Quarantined or deleted.

How do I quarantine or delete this file from my MacMini6,2 ?

    Hi Keith,

    No need to worry about those, they are both false positives.

    I hope this information helps,
