When potential harmful content is detected on your computer, then Microsoft Security Essentials will display a window with brief instructions about the file, infection name, and possible actions like:

  • Remove
  • Quarantine
  • Allow

Based on your input, MSE takes the necessary steps in removing or leaving the file in its place. This is the only way MSE alerts you about a possible infection.
