Understanding AVG7 Free Virus Vault
, AVG asked if I wanted to Heal and I said yes(bad move? should have sent to vault?),..
Whenever AVG Free Edition detects a virus, we recommend that you try to heal the infected object as the first option. When AVG Free Edition is unable to heal the virus (this may occur for any of many reasons, including the distortion of the original file by the virus) use the next alternative – move it to the AVG Virus Vault. The last option is to delete the infected object (which is often the virus itself)...

Yes. When a program quarantines a file or moves it into a virus vault (chest), 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.
Should I delete the trojan ( and others there as well ) from the vault?
