Trust quarentine files from another computer


using a pendrive in a computer where I have not administrator permissions nor McAfee permissions, some files were quarentined. I cannot trust them from that computer, but I was wondering if I could trust them by saving them in another computer  (installing previously the McAfee software) where I could admin permissions.

Thanks a lot in advance for your reponse,

Kind regards.

Re: Trust quarentine files from another computer

Depends on the type of McAfee software and the how those were detected.   The home product doesn't have a trust feature except in the case of something being identified as a  PUP (Possibly Unwanted Program) and only then can it be trusted.

So really it may make no difference.
