Microsoft Security Essentials Quarantine Folder

My friend has asked where could we find the Quarantine folder for Microsoft Security Essentials. He is interest to see what it looks like and what will happen if he opens the folder.

After doing some research online I found the path finally:
In Windows XP:
C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataMicrosoftMicrosoft AntimalwareQuarantine

In Windows Vista / Windows 7

C:ProgramDataMicrosoftMicrosoft AntimalwareQuarantine

You may need to enabled your computer to view hidden file in order to view the Quarantine folder.

Hope you find it useful =)
