AVG is in error here.
False positives annoy the crap out of people, particularly those whose products are wrongly 'flagged'.
False negatives on the other hand are much more of a problem, particularly for the consumer as they mean both the AV proggy is deficient AND the computer is compromised....
I think it is probably only a matter of time before someone ends up suing an AV company for incorrectly flagging a product as a malware.
They are in a position to seriously harm the reputation of companies and they need to take more responsibility for their actions. Taking this recent false positive as an example, AVG does not say it thinks the file might be a threat it says it is a threat.
That rings a bell somewhere....I think it's already been done/tried....
