Using AVG Scanner (Free Version)

  ex4thhussar 06:09 06 Mar 05

Have recently installed the free version of AVG Antivirus program.
Everything appears to be up and running but my query is:
If the system detects a virus (in this case a Trojan Horse RC/Back Door SD.Bot 145 AP) does it automatically transfer it to the 'VIRUS VAULT' without any further action on my part?
Please forgive my ignorance... I'm 80 plus and in these matters it shows !
Many thanks for any help

It usually does transfer to the virus vault but sometimes it is not able to for some reason. The easiest way to check would be to open the virus vault and see if it is in there. OPe the control panel and look at the vault panel it should say the number of nasties stored there.

Hi Bagsey
Many thanks for prompt reply which has partly solved problem.
As you pointed out, the file now shows up in the VIRUS VAULT but only 1 out of 2 viruses identified.
I have re-run AVG scan and to-date this now shows the system as being clear.
Your help was much appreciated, also getting an e-mail from PCADvisor telling me I had a response.
Thanks to all
