If it's been removed to the vault, wouldn't that render a scan unnecessary, as I could then click on the vault and delete it from there? Less bother than running a scan if I didn't keep a note of the infected folder!
i havnt a clue how avg works really.just guessing :-)
avg help is good though because it does know what its talking about :-)
"When AVG detects a virus that cannot be removed by healing, it uses a special way of deleting the infected file - AVG moves it to the AVG Virus Vault."
"What is the AVG Virus Vault? The AVG Virus Vault is a special directory that stores infected files. The name of the files are changed and their content is encrypted so they cannot be used and virus infection cannot spread. It is almost the same as ordinary deleting techniques; however, the AVG Virus Vault gives you the ability to restore the files, if necessary."
im guessing that a scan is still required just to check there is nothing else on the drive as a precaution.
