When your McAfee antivirus software performs a scan of your computer, it quarantines files that might contain viruses or be harmful to your machine. Sometimes, McAfee will quarantine files that are harmless and do not need to be in the quarantine. When this happens, you can check the files to make sure they are clean and then restore them.
