Here's even more relevant information:
AVG Virus Vault
The AVG Virus Vault application is a safe environment for management of suspect or infected objects detected during AVG Free Edition scanning.
Once an infected object is detected during scanning, and AVG Free Edition is not able to heal it automatically, you are asked to decide what to do with the suspect object. The recommended solution is to move the object to the AVG Virus Vault for further treatment.
Viruses can be detected by any of various AVG Free Edition components, such as AVG Resident Shield and AVG E-mail Scanner. Viruses can also be found when running a test from the AVG Test Interface or even when using Windows Explorer.
d) AVG Virus Vault Environment
Every detected infected object should be moved to the AVG Virus Vault. Within the AVG Virus Vault you can explore the object, delete it, or heal and restore the object if the cure has been implemented already. Also, you can send the object to the AVG Anti-Virus vendor for in-depth analysis.
I have some files in the AVG Virus Vault. What next?
Most of today's viruses (Trojan horses, I-Worms, Worms, Backdoors, etc) create infected files. In such cases the only way to remove the infection is to delete the infected file. When you moved the file to the AVG Virus Vault it was deleted from its original location, coded, and then saved in a non-executable file in a hidden folder. Your PC is no longer infected.
If you are not missing any data file and your applications are running, then you can delete these vaulted files from the AVG Virus Vault. You can do it selectively: - from the AVG Virus Vault program->select files->delete. Or you can delete all AVG Virus Vault contents in one go: - Open the AVG Control Center program->right click on AVG Virus Vault component->choose "Empty vault".
Note that files removed from your e-mails are also moved to the AVG Virus Vault. If you do not have a content filter set, then these files are infected and can be removed, as shown above. If you have set a content filter, then you should decide what to do with the vaulted files.
If you want, you can set automatic actions in the AVG Virus Vault. Please open the AVG Virus Vault-> Service menu->Program setting. Here you can set any required automatic actions.
