AVG and JK Defrag Gui

Got a threat warning from AVG last night re Worm/Autoit.ZM and linking it to JKDefrag GUI.....and found the quote below on the JK Forum this morning...


"The latest virus definitions from AVG show the Emiel Wieldraaijer version of JkDefragGui as a virus: Worm/Autoit.ZM."

Have used this GUI for months so I am hoping that this is a AVG false positive although no reference on the AVG forum as yet.

Anyone else seen this warning?

I have confirmed the posting on the JK forum and also posted on the AVG forum so will await developments.

All my antispyware comes up clean like yourself.

No warning from NOD32 v3, upload the file to click here if you're unsure.

Thanks for that brundle.
First off the JKDefrag program itself seems to be unaffected it's the GUI which is throwing a wobbly.
I uninstalled the GUI and downloaded afresh and got the same threat warning as soon as I unzipped it.
Ran it through your VirusTotal link and it came up with 7 positives (nearly all different).
I will just run with the basic program and forget the GUI until someone decides what is going on.

Definitions file update from AVG ... and the JKDefrag GUI is no longer a threat!
Don't you just love AV programs!!!
