AVG false reporting


AVG has thrown a wobbly, and is reporting infected files even though as I'm downloading them (Dark Messiah, Scarface and Warhammer MOC patches)

Trojan Horse Generic6.UMS

Anyone else having this?

i have read about this sort of response.

for an explanation beyond anything i can say, try 'google' for anti virus false positive.

you will then have to decide IF it is false, or IF it is a 'modified' file with malicious intent.

Is it fully patched and up to date? IIRC I remember reading some about false postivies and a fix a couple of days ago.

And could you please fix your eariler post with the images in, use thumbnails (1st pic has, 2nd pic hasn't).

I read a lot about false reporting with AVG and game files, though I have yet to encounter any with my paid-for version (but I don't have enough time for gaming :(). Seems after a couple of days it usually goes away with updates
