How to remove rqc.exe malware from system using Comodo Cleaning Essentials?

Regardless of the type of scan you choose, the results will sometimes show false positive (flagging files that are actually safe), which has to be ignored. Only select the files you want to get rid of.
  1. Click 'Apply' to apply the selected operations to the threats. The selected operations will be applied.
