I am using AVG and used Norton AV before. If a virus is discovered, it
wants to quarantine them. Why cant you just delete them?

Insurance.

If a given file is as an infector, it can be quarantined.  If it is later deemed
to be a
false declaration then the file can be restored from quarantine.

This is a good thing !

BTW:  Thanx for following my advice  :-)
