I have a video downloading program called Graboid on my computer... I also have the free AVG antivirus 2013. I have downloaded about 6 videos with no problems. yesterday i was trying to download a movie and AVG told me it found a threat: general behavioral detection. i allowed it to remove the threat. after doing so, Graboid would not work properly, i reinstalled it and began downloading a different video today. AVG popped up again but this time more than half way through the download with the same message. I allowed AVG to again get rid of the threat... I reinstalled graboid again due to the same issue. I tried to download something else and got the same message again. Is there really a problem or is AVG mistaking a download that takes about 40 mins as a threat??

Hello Erica H,

Please refer to the following article for help on your issue:How To Handle Suspicious False Positive Detection?

Until false detection will be fixed please refer to FAQ 5190.
