    there seem to be 4 backups of infected files in my virus vault but when i right click it and select heal file it asks " This is a backup from previous healing. Do you really want to heal this file?" i click yes and then a screen saying virus vault error pops up.

    That means that it cannot be healed so just delete them. It appears as though your antivirus program done its job so just keep it updated.
