Could somebody verify that with their antivirus program?

I'd send it off to AVG for them to look at.

We recently had a case where our scanner (Sophos) started detecting 'malware' in a program we'd been using since 2000 (and the EXE hadn't changed), we sent off a copy to them and within a couple of hours they'd verified it was a false positive, and released an update to fix it.

False positives do happen, and the scanner authors are the right people to check and fix it if it is a false positive, or to confirm that it is a virus/trojan if it is.
