I have AVG Anit-Virus Free and I was wondering how do I permanently remove the viruses from the Virus Vault without having them infect my computer? Thanks.

Gir: Nothing.
Zim: You haven't touched it? Something is broken and it's not YOUR fault??

From the AVG Test Center, click on the Virus Vault tab. When that appears, click on Action at the top bar. Clicking on Empty Vault will delete all the files.

If you are not missing any data file and your applications are running, then you can delete these vaulted files from the AVG Virus Vault program. You can do it selectively: - from the AVG Virus Vault program -> select files -> delete. Or you can delete all AVG Virus Vault contents in one go: - Open the AVG Control Center program -> right click on "AVG Virus Vault" tab -> choose "Empty vault".
Note that files removed from your e-mails are also moved to the AVG Virus Vault. If you do not have a content filter set, then these files are infected and can be removed, as shown above. If you have set a content filter, then you should decide what to do with the vaulted files.
If you want, you can set automatic actions in the AVG Virus Vault. Please open the AVG Virus Vault program -> "Service" menu -> "Program setting". Here you can set any required automatic actions.
