Specs: ME, 633\191
I got many trojans in the virus vault today and yeaterday(7\29 and 7\30). I have the free version of AVG anti-virus. Should I try to empty the virus vault. I don't know how but I got 2 new icons on my desktop. One is called media tube codec (2 of these icons showed up) and the other is called vista antivirus 2008. I have windows ME. I don't know why these showed up. I guess it happened when I tried to download something. There is also something called Quicken(windows start... file folder) in the recycle bin and I don't know what it is(can I delete it)? None of these things are in the add\delete list in my control panel but there is something called Quicken Basic 2000 there. Shall I try to empty these thing from the recycle bin. I think they might have something to do with the trojans showing up. Since the trojans are in the virus vault does that mean AVG took care of them? Thanks

This should really have been asked in the Security/Virus Forum. You should request it be moved or deleted, then repost if necessary.

Life's more painless for the brainless.

What type of downloading are you doing that you're getting all these infections?

It might have been one of the sexy emails I hadn't requested that I clicked on out of curiosity. I noticed that 8:45 this morning 11 of them came in at the same time. That is the last of them today. What I want to know is should I try to delete them from the virus vault and should I try to delete those items I mentioned from my recycle bin? I also found out I can get yahoo antispy so I did and after running it it said it got rid of some of the trojans. If I have more trouble with it I'll mention it. Again , I want to send this to the security\virus forum but I don't know how to delete it from this forum first. Thanks

No more viruses showing up yet since 7\30. I want to use the heal function using 'action' in the virus vault but in its dropdown box 'heal file(s)' is not highlighted so I can't do it. Is there a way to get it highlighted?

if you delete the viruses that avg has found on your computer tey will all run loose. Avg is unable to delete viruses so it stored the viruses on a vault inn your hard drive. if you deleting them is just like letting them back on to corrupt your comuter
