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.
