Safe to delete virus vault?
I have this hidden folder named "$AVG8.VAULT$" which contains some trojans. Is it safe to just SHIFT-DEL it?

Maybe getTimer() or TweenMax is the answer to your problem . . .

The folder is created by AVG anti virus, once the files are in the ****ty vault, I never know how to delete them. Just do a reinstall AHAHMember #2 of the "I wont critique Timmytot's designs anymore" club.

Everytime a virus is found, it's deactivated and sent to that folder. I don't want it taking up space. If I delete that folder, the viruses won't just respawn ...... right?

It is much safer to delete the virus files trapped in the virus vault itself of AVG anti virus. It would automatically delete the virus files in the "$AVG8.VAULT$" folder that you see in your Drive c:.

i would leave folders created by your antivirus program as they are - if you wanna get rid of their content there's probably in an option in the virusscanner UI - if not its probably not supposed be deleted..

I've deleted it myself with no complications.
