    Use the clean setting? I had the same problem and I couldnt get rid of them, instead of letting it find them for you, run the system scan tool and delete every infected file...

    Clean setting? I have no idea what you are talking about. I ran the system scan, and it won't let me delete them...that is why I am asking for help.

    I was under the impression that AVG would do that, that is why I did not have something else.

    Can anyone help me?

    Artemis, as I said in my first description. It lists them as being archived files, and you cannot remove them the way you would remove a normal one. Those options are not there for me. I cannot move them to the vault. There were a few that allowed me those options, and I got rid of them, these will not.

    Can anyone tell me how to remove the infected archived files through AVG?

    Avg is as good or better than Norton.

    Go to the virus vault Corry, and select the files, then "wipe" them.

    If not...there is one other option...

    Option AVG, then go to Test center, and then go disk rescue.

    This will attack the files in Doss mode, thus Windows wont protect the files.....I think anyways
    Have a look at it, its your best bet :)

    I can't move them to the vault. They are archived files, so it will not let me do that.
