Question on Discord Gif Trojan

Hey everyone! I’ve seen a few posts about this already, I recently fell for the popular TrojanDownloaded:HTML/Adodb.gen!A virus. The file was quarantined, and I manually deleted my Discord cache folder and cleared my recycling bin. My issue is I haven’t seen a clear consensus as to whether manually getting rid of it instead of leaving to quarantined is a good or bad thing. I’ve seen a couple mentions that deleting it manually is “strongly discouraged”, which seems worrisome. Am I safe for simply deleting the cache folder? Is there anything further I should do? I also did a full scan of my PC, and no threats were found. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
