I found viruses in the home folder, but I don't know which command is used to delete viruses in Ubuntu 12.10 using AVG antivirus. Can anyone tell me how to delete it?

Could you possible provide a screen-shot! – blade19899 Jan 22 '13 at 15:27

Edit the file ~/.avg/config/default.cfg

Search the section: [test_config] and add clean = True

Note: The avg folder will contain the version number.
