I downloaded the file, but I scanned it before launching it and put it in the AVG virus vault. Can I delete the file from the vault without doing any damage to my computer? Will my computer become infected even if I did not open the file?

If you didn't open it, you should be alright.
Delete the file, and do a virus scan, just to be sure. :thumbsup:

One measure of protection is to send a file to Virus Total for analysis:

LINK

You will see a browse button and a send button on the top of that web page,
so you can send a file up to 10MB for analysis of malicious software.

Files up to 15 MB can be sent to JOTTI for analysis.
