.avc File Extension

Developer: Kaspersky
File type: Kaspersky Virus Database
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .avc. Files with the file extension .avc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .avc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .avc file?

Files with the .avc extension are used by applications from the Kaspersky anti-virus software product line. These AVC files are classified as data files, and the Kaspersky anti-virus software uses the data stored in these AVC files as updates for its virus definitions, and these virus definitions are stored in the Kaspersky virus database. These .avc files are also called Kaspersky virus database files. The dbs001.avc, dbs002.avc and dbs003.avc files are examples of these AVC files. Users who already have the Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 software installed into their Microsoft Windows-based systems can configure the application to automatically download and use these AVC files to update the current virus definitions stored in its database with the most recent virus definitions from the developer. The Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 software is also integrated with support for these AVC files, and this program can be installed in computers running on Microsoft Windows systems. The virus definitions database of this software can also be updated by the content of an AVC file containing virus definitions recently released by Kaspersky Lab.

how to open a .avc file?

Launch a .avc file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .avc file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .avc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .avc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .avc file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .avc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .avc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
