Hello is there a way of deleting everything in the virus chest?  I'm using the free antivirus AVAST.  Thanks from Vonny.

Right click a file (or first select multiple files) and choose delete.

Yes, as described by Eddy.

However, there is no rush to delete files from the virus chest.

Files in the chest should be left there for a few weeks to ensure there is no adverse effect from having sent them there - next scan those files (you wish to delete) and if they are still considered infected, yes manually delete them from the virus chest.
