AVG Admits Windows Trojan a False Positive

Kara Reeder

AVG has admitted that a warning that the Windows system file 'user32.dll' is infected with a Trojan is a false positive, reports vnunet.com.


Many Windows XP users of AVG 7.5 and AVG 8.0 were told to delete the file, which rendered their PC useless. To get PCs up and running again, users of AVG's forums have suggested booting from the Windows install disk and replacing the lost file.


According to The Register, the antivirus firm has updated its virus definition files and issued a workaround.
