What is CAV file?
CAV files are virus definitions. They provide a file that contains a list of dangerous software that the computer has already encountered on previous sessions. For example, if the computer has malware on it, it will generate a CAV file and store it in the default location for shortcuts or programs. This can be used to protect your computer from potential threats.
