The purpose of the vault is to quarantine files that have been infected. In most cases, these are new files created by the virus or the actual virus itself, but certain viruses infect files that may be important to you. The vault allows you to quarantine the files so that they can be healed when a solution is found or submitted for analysis. In most cases you can simply delete vault files.

How do you remove a Trojan horse called downloader.lookme.A when AVG can't remove it?

I had this same problem with a computer at work. AVG 7.0 wouldn't heal the infected files automatically or move them to the Virus Vault. I moved the infected files into the Virus Vault myself. You can do this in AVG. Once in the Vault, you can delete them. Don't delete if they are critical or actual system files. The infected files were simply temporary Internet files, but because they were in Windows\Temporary Internet Files\IE content (Windows98), they read as system files and AVG wouldn't touch them. I ran another couple of scans after doing this and the machine was clear. Hope this helps.
