Open MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware, go in Quarantine, click once on beep.sys file and select Restore.

I read the info about beep.sys. However, this doesn't seem to answer the OP question, which was "Hi, is it safe to delete the quarantined items, can't seem to fine out any info how the quarantine tool works."

I had the same question. Once MBAB quarantines the files, is it safe to delete them? Is it better to leave them in the quarantine or should they be deleted?

I was infected with a particularly annoying Trojan that MBAM handled nicely, even after my paid service was unable to deal with it. Now I have the nasties in my quarantine. Should I just leave them there or should I delete them? What are the pros and cons of the actions?

Thanks,

Question: What's Quarantine?

Answear: Quarantine folder is where to store infected or suspicious files to a format unharmed. Resident protection module by default placed under quarantine all newly created and modified suspicious files, you can set separate quarantine file that you want. Quarantined files can then be restored to their original place where you choose.

When the threat is in quarantine, you can be sure that everything is okay!
