  1. Hi,

    I'm a new member and in some minutes ago I did a "Scan whole computer" and the option "Automatically heal/remove infection" were boxed. When the scan started the AVG Antivirus Free edition (8.0.138) found a ".exe" file that he thought was a virus or something. The problem is that I need that thing and I must get it back. I can see it in "Scan results" > Spyware and there see the file and "Moved to Virus Vault". How does I get the file back? Tell me as quick as possible cause this may cause problem for me and my work...

    If you have any questions I'll be happy to answer so you maybe find a way. As I told this may cause problems for me and my work (big company).

    hi roger,

    To open the Virus Vault, navigate via Main Screen -> Main Menu History -> Virus Vault.

    After highlighting an object in the list with your mouse, the function buttons enable you to carry out the following actions:

    Restore– moves the infected file to its original location (stated in the Path to file column)
