I'm not into the malware side of things. Other than installing, setting up, and updating, I confess I'm pretty ignorant. I've used AVG for years, without a hitch. I just started using the Opers browser and today I get a warning saying I have 2 trojans and they're in the virus vault. The objects are:
opr02GD1.htm and opr012GU.htm. The path for both are: C:\Program Files\Opera\profile\cache4\
Can I delete them from the vault? Is there a specific procedure?
Thanks
Mark

When an anti-virus quarantines a file by moving it into a virus vault (chest), that file is essentially disabled and prevented from causing any harm to your system. The quarantined 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 a crucial 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.

"Understanding AVG7 Free Virus Vault"
"AVG FAQ #647: I have some files in the AVG Virus Vault. What next?"

The AVG Free Edition Reference Guide and 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.
