My antivirus software found found four virus/threats when I was perusing the Internet last night.
After about 40 minutes of scanning everything in my computer, the software reported that it couldn't heal the viruses. So they were just sitting there.
I clicked on a few things and found the option, "Move to vault." I clicked on that. Was that the right thing to do?
Worried. This stuff gives me a stomach ache.
I wish I could advise, but you know ....
Best of luck in fixing the problem. I wish I could offer more than this.
I would suggest there is nothing to worry about Roberta. This is probably spywear rather than virus. may be eevn just cookies.
yes move to vault is the right thing.
What is the name of your antivirus program.
Did it give any details? Virus names? or locations? Can you look at the vault to see whats in there? Any reports.
Sometimes your virus program will deal with these next time you restart your computer.
I don't know if this is any help or not, Roberta, but when you emailed me a while ago my virus detector, didn't detect a problem.
Olga, this happened after we e-mailed.
Phoenix, Yes, I have avg. I just opened the vault and found a bunch of stuff there, more than the four viruses found today.
Does empty the vault mean the same thing as deleting the files? For the time being, I think I'll leave them in the vault, as long as they're safely tucked away in there. I opened your link. Have no idea what to do.
I'll call the geek who installed AVG on Monday.
As long as the viruses can't hurt anything now, I'm gonna try to get my stomach to calm down. Thanks for responding. I appreciate your efforts to help a computer idiot like me.
