    AVG Virus Vault

    AVG detected a trojan which it isolated and I elected to put it in the virus vault. Is it safe to just delete this file from the virus vault. Initially it said I could heal the trojan or put in the vault but now its in the vault I dont seem to have the heal option anymore. Any ideas please

    I'm no expert at all, but last time I had a virus I moved it to the vault and deleted it from there, and I've had no trouble since.

        I just used to delete them Mal. I think they ask you in case its a file or something you need but I cant see how likely that is

          If it is in an important file that's infected then a warning will be given before you confirm you want to delete.

              The "Heal" option would most likely fail - always has for me. Just delete the file.

                  If heal fails always leave the file in the vault for a couple of days to ensure that your PC works ok without the file. If you have no problems you can assume that it is safe the delete the file from the vault.
