Athough AVG is programmed to automatically update each day, it does not always update completely. We suggest you check every other day and make sure you have the most updated protection.
AVG will go out and download any updates.
A new window will open telling you that the Update was finished successfully.
To check you have downloaded all updates, left click on Update Now once again.
Repeat this until AVG states there are No new update files are available.
Select Finish to confirm and exit AVG unless you wish to run a Full System Scan.
As long as you are running AVG's Live Update each day, a full scan should only be necessary once a week.
If the Full Scan detects a Virus or Trojan, AVG will try to heal it. If this is not possible then AVG will either remove it to the Virus Vault or ask you what you would like to do. Always remove it to the Virus Vault. Once the infected file is moved, it no longer can cause any damage. This version of AVG is also searching for Spyware and Malware. You will find AVG will also show low threat files and tags. As far as we are concerned, remove anything it finds to the virus vault. But you do have a choice and you may wish to leave the Low Level files and tags in tact.
On the toolbar select History and on the drop down menu select Virus Vault. This will open up your Virus Vault for inspection. If there are Viruses or Trojans being held in there, select Empty Vault to delete them and select OK to close the Vault window.
