AVG picked it up (Downloader.Agent.ACRN) so i clicked to delete but it said summat like the pc might not work properly or words to that effect if i did so i healed it.i want to know how i can get rid cos it's stuck in the vault.

if its in the vault its ok there

the file is safe to be kept in the vault
if its in the vault then your pc isnt using the file so I would leave it in there for a couple of weeks then if pc runs ok just delete it.
also turn of system restore and do another scan as the system restore may have the file in a back up if file is picked up with system restore off leave it in vault the turn system restore back on and reboot pc

Be aware you will lose any system restore points that have been created if you turn off system restore.

Though this is a practice used by many it is not totally advisble,better to deal with the problem if possible.
