Quarantining a virus.

 Q3.  What do you understand by quarantining a virus?

Ans. Quarantine means keeping the virus in some isolated place on your computer under strict vigilance so that it cannot do further harm to your computer. If you think the program may be a virus, you can send the quarantined virus to the antivirus vendor, where researchers examine it, determine its signature, name and catalog it and release its antidote. If the virus never appears again, which often happens when it is poorly written, the vendor categorizes the virus as dormant.
