AVG Running Scan

As AVG finds problems it will deal with them automatically if it can, firstly it will try to repair the problem, then if this fails it will try to quarantine the problem and if both fail it will delete the infected item.  All of this information is shown in a report it gives you at the end.  Example report shown below.
