I can find NO reference to the Trojan Horse Generic 9.ZV0 when I Google it, which AVG picked up the other day. It cannot be healed, has been put into Virus Vault, and states it's

Object name: READREG.EXE
Object Path: :\\Windows\
Source: Backup Copy
Status: Infected

Your thoughts on this please?

Could be what is known as a 'False Positive' ... or in other words a false alarm!

PS - it is quite safe anyway to leave it in the Vault.

Never quite sure though, when AVG give the choice to DELETE or EMPTY the Vault which is the safest! They don't tell ya, do they...

I think the safest is to leave it in the Vault - if in your case it is a false alarm, you might upset something else on your pc by deleting it - possibly lose your Sound, for instance.

I've been having prob using headset for VoIP calls - Mike works fine, but sound will NOT come through earphones - the headset DOES work, cos I tried it on the Laptop and all was OK..
