my AVG does a virus check once a week. It just finished and found a trojan in the system restore folder. It healed the item. As I looked at the results I see "empty fault" and "delete". What is the difference? Do both get the file off my system?

    "Delete" should delete one fine at a time. "Empty Vault" should delete everything at once.

    Yes, it does.

    # Delete  completely and irreversibly removes the file from the disk.
    # Empty Vault  removes all files from the Virus Vault. By removing the files from the Virus Vault, these files are completely and irreversibly removed from the disk (not moved to the Recycle Bin).
