Re: How to activate AVG buttons in a threat alert

Chris,

Not a bad suggestion, to take a look in the virus vault. But the rest seems 
a bit overcomplicated. I mean, I've just performed a full system scan, and 
turned up no more threats. Why would I be so anxious that I'd do exactly the 
same thing all over again? I have a feeling it's taken care of.

Thanks.

Hi, why not check the AVG Virus Vault and see if it's gone to there.
Alternatively, do a scan on that particular file only, if it can be found
that is. If no threats were detected on the file itself, then chances are it
healed it successfully. If in doubt, just perform another full scan. Chances
are the alert won't come up and you'll truly have no threats on your
computer. Hope that helps.
