I have been using the AVG Free Edition ver. 7.5.472.
When it detects a virus the AVG Resident Shield window
It contains 4 options: Ignore, Info, Heal and Move to Vault
It waits for my decision for some seconds only.
It is possible that I am far from the computer when it appears.
My questions are::
1) What happens when I don't answer?
2) Where and how could I set what I want the AVG to do
when I don't answer?
I would be very grateful for your help.
If the infected file is in use at the time it's detected try scanning from safe
The file could be contained in your system restore in which case you can turn
in control panel/system restart the computer, then enable restore again. That
the restore out and get rid of the infected files if they are in restore.
You can also search online for the identified virus/trojan and find manual
instructions. Symantec, McAfee, etc all have good information on manually
You can ask here for help also. David, Art et. al. are experts and can give you
and good advice.
I knew about scanning in safe mode and turning off restore to get rid of a virus
my system restore.
My question was what AVG did when it detected a virus that couldn't be healed -
is it ignored or sent to vault (providing I told it to heal infected files
I think that I should look at the AVG Test Results section more often.
