AVG Free on my Android 2.1 phone has begun reporting "Google Search (Enhanced)" as "Intrusive adware".

(1) Is this software really from Google, or is it an impostor? How can I find this out?

(2) How can I send this software to AVG for examination as a possible false positive, or confirmation as an impostor? I didn't download it manually; somehow it was installed automatically as an update or something. How can I extract a file to send?

(If it's really from Google, I don't mind. But I have found some Internet references saying that a virus disguises itself as "Google Search (Enhanced)".)

Have a look @ Weekly Overview: 9/2013.. Where can I send an Android malware app or false positive samples. Subscribe to this RSS feed if you want to be notified about new Weekly Overviews.
