I have microsoft security essentials installed on my laptop. when i scanned my external harddisk, it found two viruses in a folder named:
Backdoor:Win32/bifrose.EO
TrojanDropper:Win32/Dunik!rts
When i tried to quarantine them both, it took a long time. After an hour, i was prompted with an error message saying "MSE coudn't apply the actions u selected." The error code was 0x80501001. What to do??

Why ? If you unzipped the file, the virus will be in another file, probably a .exe, that is essential to run the program. If you removed that, then it won't work anyway.

Edit. You could always unzip the file and rescan of course.
