    I have the AVG 7.5 Internet Security package which seems okay.The scans automatically sends items to the Virus Vault incorrectly deemed as trojans. Now, I have program(s) that will not work. Is there a way to tweak the scan results that will prompt me as regards items to be healed, delete, etc. Thanks.

    you can restore files from the virus vault i think.

    and yes you can change your settings, a good way to do this is in the advanced layout, right click your scans > Edit and change the preferances to your liking.

    Yes, you can restore any file(s) from the virus vault. Open the virus vault, click Actions at the top, click restore file(s).

    he did not come here to be told "ditch it" for something else, he basically just had a question about settings.

    AVG suite is a good one, he should definatly keep it and be happy with its good detection and SUPER FAST boot-up time and pc performance.

    Have run other virus pgms - I do not know if any of them are better than any other. AVG I know will pick up on trojans. If someone would recommend one over the other AND tell me why they fell that I would like to hear about it. Thanks all.

    gale, people will come here with percentages of detetion rates that do not reflect the actual performance of the antivirus in question.

    trust me when i say, your suite is a good one, with probably the best performane rate of any other suite, and definatly the best bootup time. As for your av detection rate, its 96.37% (not bad eh? :D ) so try not to listen to these people who tell you to shop elsewhere, sure... you can trial the other companys if you wish, but make your decision based on your own experiences with the software, this is the best advice i can give you.

    latest test result here at http://www.av-comparatives.org

    I have always disliked AVG suites.
    Although AVG AS, I like a lot.

    Hello,

    Deleted files go into a vault.

    So you can restore them. Right-click on the entry - restore. And your files will be back. And then, do not allow to automatically heal infected files under test settings.

    Furthermore, you can disable heuristics. Recently, AVG got wild with heuristics. For the similar reason to yours, I have disabled the scheduled scan on the two machines I have it installed.

    Mrk
