    Question about AVG Free 2012?
    « on: December 15, 2011, 04:33:25 AM »
    So, I kept getting threats from 'Trojan.fakealert' and I ssent them to the virus vault. I cleared the virus vault and today while scanning, it said in the scan results I have an infection called: Trojan Horse Generic26.xku
    It is in the virus vault. Since it is in there- will it still harm my computer?
    And can I safely clear the virus vault?

    As long as it remains in the vault it is harmless. Yes, you can clear the vault.

      Update your software protection.
      Microsoft Defender maybe
      Run Spybot, from safer-networking.org
