Welcome to BC XOX

When a program quarantines a file or moves it into a virus vault, that file is safely held there (and no longer a threat) until you take action to delete it. One reason for doing this is to prevent deletion of an essential file that may have been flagged as a "False Positive". If that is the case, then you can restore the file. Doing this also allows you to view and investigate the files while keeping them from harming your computer. Quarantine is just an added safety measure.

When the file in the vault is known to be bad, you can delete it at any time.

virustotal.com should have provided you with results of the file analysis by various anti-virus vendors which confirmed it as malware. If so, then just delete the file from the vault.

"AVG FAQ #647: I have some files in the AVG Virus Vault. What next?"
"Understanding AVG7 Free Virus Vault"
Chapter 6 of the AVG Anti-Virus Free User Manual explains more detail about the virus vault. The manual is also a good resource for explaining the Control Center, Settings, and other information.

Here is one review for Trojan Hunter.
