Hi all - I have just gotten a warning that AVG detected a virus in a message. The dialog box says what was found in the attachment was I-Worm/DUMARU.Y virus. The OE Rules had sent it to the Delete folder, and when I opened the Delete folder I got the warning message immediately. The warning dialog box says; Hidden extension.exe, etc.; "Infected file will be removed to the Virus Vault (what/where ever that is). The infected attachment will be overwritten with information about AVG intervention." :blink: I have not seen this one before. Is this an old or new one? Is it one also making the rounds now to watch for? :unsure: Thank you, Tink :wavey:

Yes, that is AVG's name for it. All the A/V vendors seem to give things a different name, just to confuse us! If it's in the virus vault (which is a hidden folder) then it's safely out of the way. If you want to certain, then unhide the folder, and delete it. AVG will make a new one on the next reboot. If you do delete it, pressing <shift><delete> will bypass the recycle bin, so it is completely removed.

Hi Dave, I see. And, you're right, it does tend confuse, from one to another with the various names. ;-) Yes, I would like to delete them totally out of the system. Just sending it to the recycle bin is sorta like having a dead rattlesnake in my kitchen trash can. I *really* don't want to take the chance of it re-incarnating itself in *my* kitchen. :oops: I have the folders unhidden, as I have been looking for this 'vault' in the Grisoft folder (for AVG), but, I can't find it. I can't find any other folder that seems to reference a relationship with AVG, so I'm sorta lost. With AVG6 Free Edition no help from Grisoft, of course. I have no idea what the name of the 'vault' might be. I am assuming it is merely a layman's term and perhaps not the actual file name. :scratch: Thank you very much for your time and help. I really appreciate it. Tink :wavey:

Hmmmm...... Funny that. I can't remember what it is either, and without a virus to put in it, I don't have one! I think it's in the root folder of the drive, and the name begins with $. If you do find it. post back so I shall know next time!

Tink......Hi

The AVG Virus Vault is a special directory that stores infected files. The name of the files are changed and their content is encrypted so they cannot be used and virus infection cannot spread. It is almost the same as ordinary deleting techniques; however, the AVG Virus Vault gives you the ability to restore the files, if necessary.

Open AVG, click on 'Program-->AVG Virus Vault. Highligt the file(s) you want to delete and press 'Delete'.....Bingo, all nasties gone for good. :D

Hi Firebird and Dave! :D Thank you for the information. I have found the $Vault$ and done a clean sweep. No more viri..virii...virium...ahmmm...yeah...those. I don't know about those sort of things, so I don't like having them hanging around. Now they're all gone. :huh: I keep getting the same DUMARU.Y virus from the same name, Elena. Wish someone would clean their machine. I've had 3 today alone. :-( This is the first time I have ever had a virus situation. Luckily, my AV is grabbing them right off and neutralizing them. :thumbup: Thank you both again for all your time and help, I truly appreciate it. Tink :wavey:
