I have been using AVG free for several months. I had my first virus found yesterday. It is now in the virus vault. What do I need to do? Should I leve it in the virus valut or "empty" the virus vault?

I use AVG and like it much better than Symantec. Leave it in the vault, it will do no harm there at all, as it is quarantined.

It's all I use anymore. I would empty the vault and be done with it.

AVAST is superior to AVG

It's also free, much faster, and catches more viruses.

AVG works, AVAST is better

Edit: Google it up, there are many comparison reviews online for your reading pleasure by various tech publications and blogs

I have a few clients (customers) that run AVG. The standalone version is OK at best. The network version is downright horrible.

ETA: I have no love for Symantec, but I'd take it over AVG in a corporate environment any day.

Just started using AVG, have used Symantec for the last few years.... Ran existing virus program (norton) found nothing, ran AVG found 16 viruses. I like AVG much better.

I also use AVG with no problems, like it much better than the two leading competitors.

Edit: If it is a file you don't need just delete it from the vault.

Save yourself some more heartache and dump Internet Explorer and Outlook and switch to Firefox and Thunderbird.

AVG is what I use at home. I used Avast a couple of years ago and it, frankly, annoyed the hell out of me. If AVG annoys me, I might try it again, but it hasn't given me cause to go anywhere else yet.

Empty the vault.

do you get a lot of viruses?
if you get a lot, leave it in the vault for comparison, otherwise just delete it
