Obfustat.ifv virus what is it and how to remove?

My up to date AVG anti-virus has identified the above virus but it's in a Quickbooks file - is this likely to be a false positive?
As it's in the virus vault, do I need to do anything else or leave it alone?
I also have a trojan horse generic .YNO that's been in the vault for 12 months - again what should I do?
Many thanks
SM

Assuming AVG will let you access it. Wait until the next update or two, if the file is still picked up as a virus empty the files from the vault. I can't remember the exact sequence but there are easily found instructions included in AVG.

thanks to you both now sorted.
Virus vault took file from the hard drive folder and I've emptied the vault.
Cheers
