Hi mcfirno,

First, your question is not clear (what is "real"?)

If something flagged incorrectly - that is an Error and that is False Positive (FP).

If the same items are not flagged after subsequent update - that was fixed.

At the same time if you read the instruction and/or the Sticky about scanning and investigating - you know that you should always save the report and submit those entries you are not sure about... especially when those are flagged in the system area (as in your case).

Not much could be said and advised based on the image posted therefore the standard procedure was suggested, where your system as a whole could be reviewed by the specialist.

My regards

I got a warning from avg's resident shield yesterday. Just assumed it was in fact a trojan horse virus and tried to move it into avg's vault. Got warning about system unstability or crash if I was to do that. Ran a-squared, which found the Trojan.Win32.Patched.aa!A2 . Tried to quarantine it - twice. Each time windows gave me a message that it had encountered a critical problem and would automatically restart. Had to go thru startup repair and chose to go to a restore point. Have visited avg's forum as well as this one. Updated avg free v. 9 and selected and scanned the files in question - no infections. Updated and ran a smart scan with a-squared free v. 4.5 - 2 low risk cookies detected. Had no idea til visiting forums that anti-(dodgy)programs could mistakenly warn you about non-existent threats. As I said, assumed if you got a warning and told it was a high risk you should try and remove it.

Hi mlcvli, welcome to the forum.

1st, please provide more detailed information about your System Environment as in Forum Posting Rules #2)

Then if you got the flaggings from AVG you had to consult their forum and submit the file(s) to AVG developers if you are not sure.

Please read the following Sticky it will help in the future

Have you saved the report?

Was it the detection as described here ?

Posting just the name of the alleged infection does not provide any information

My regards

p.s. It is better to create a separate thread since the original post here is about different matter
