I just woke my computer (Windows Vista, AVG 8.5) from standby, plugged in my iPod Touch, and it complains that one of the iTunes DLLs is infected with the "Small.BOG" Trojan.
I hit "Heal" and all was well. iTunes wouldn't run, obviously. So I downloaded and ran up the latest iTunes installer to repair the installation, and got "Multiple threat detection" and a list of all of the iTunes Localisation dlls.
I'm pretty certain the problem here is with AVG's definitions.
Anybody else seen similar? I have the latest virus definitions.

Someone removed my last post...not sure why, but I supose I can guess that they don't cotton to criticism here.
To those who are convinced that this is a falso positive, the way to stop AVG from harassing you about it is to select "Manage Exceptions" in the Resident Shield portion of the AVG interface, and add the path C:\Program Files\ipod
I have followed the instructions above and sent the original cause of the blowout - iTunes.dll - to AVG. Here's hoping they fix it quicksmart so I can remove those folders from my exceptions list.
None of the other virus scanners on Jotti Virusscan picked it up, and there must be hundreds of people posting on the Apple forums about it. It's a false positive, or everybody in the world with iTunes has been targeted by an awesome virus.
