Hello Defence

Chest is used to store something precious but here, something suspicious. the three files you have mentioned are windows system files which avast has made a back up so that should these files get corrupted, it can be brought back.

if you have suspicious or a false positive file detected, you can add in the user files area and can submit to avast with a single click and thereby helping avast improve detection.

I really do wish Alwil would get rid of this All Chest Files collation of the three sections:
  • The only area you should be interested in is the Infected Files section, this is where the files detected by avast and selected by you to move to the chest are placed.
  • The User Files section is where the user can add files they suspect of being malware but not detected by avast.
  • The System Files section is where avast keeps back-up copies of important system files in case the original becomes infected (leave them alone).
  • The All Chest Files is a collation of the three sections.
