Windows 7: AVG Anti-virus False Positive???

Windows 7 Home Premium


...going to add the 2 infections in AVG to the exceptions list.
That is a good move.

Did some searching in the AVG forum, and, this issue has happened before.
Apparently AVG and Emulation programs have a grudge going...

However, if you get any more Rootkit warnings, feel free to come back, and we will dig deeper.

Have a good week!!

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

I sent several reports to AVG, (they finally got back to me arg!) and thanks to that they put out a global updates that fixed all my false positives. Yay! no threats found now while scanning computer. (I hadn't added those ones to exception yet either)


Thank you Cottonball for working with me!
