Is it Safe to Delete Files From the AVG Antivirus Vault? It looks like my system restore files got infected.
You should have the option within AVG to delete the files from the vault. The system restore files can be removed by disabling system restore. Go to System Restore and check the box that says Turn off system restore for all drives. Then reboot your computer and go back and turn it on. When you turn off system restore it clears out all of your restore points which are shown as that letter/number combination you referred to. Keep in mind that you won’t have any restore points to go back to in case you need to restore your computer to a previous state. Once you get the viruses out of there you can create new restore points to go back to in case you have a problem in the future. You may also be ok just leaving the files in the vault since they should be quarantined and prevented from causing any harm.
