Please enlighten me about this probably silly question. If a folder is scanned with AV are its contents scanned too?

YES, As far as i am aware AVG will scan the folder & its contents, if in doubt why not choose custom scan, browse to the folder you want to scan, making sure it is open then click scan.
if you have a file that you are unsure of, then you should also scan for Trojans as well, ATShiels from click here will scan files for trojans for you, you cant be too careful.
