avg / have i got a virus or not.

Hello , while running avg and in the box where it is running that shows virus I get,
i shell 32.dll change c/windows\system32\shell32dll

But, at the end of the scan it says no virus's were detected.
Can you explain to me please what it is?

As long as it is showing no threats and no virus it's nothing to worry about. The reason the dll's are showing change is almost certainly down to windows updates.

If you open AVG at the main page ( test centre) and press the f3 key on your keyboard you should be presented with a message box , tell it to accept changes and AVG should stop showing this file as changed. ( this works most of the time but not always). This is only a short term cure as any future updates may show this or other files as changed so you nay choose to leave it as it is.
I got this by a google but I am sure that the topic has been raised on this forum but I know not where.

I have tried the f3 and it worked ok.

Another way to get rid of this is to delete the file named AVG7QT.DAT in C:\ and AVG will rebuild it the next time it is run. This is from Grisoft.
