The latest version of AVG seems to be falsely identifying Google Desktop and possibly other applications as a Trojan Virus.
When a virus is found that actually isn't one - it is called a false positive.
Follow the instructions below to turn off the false warning,
click on OVERVIEW
double click on RESIDENT SHIELD
click on MANAGE EXCEPTIONS
click on ADD PATH
click on plus sign next to COMPUTER
click on plus sign next to C
click on plus sign next to Program Files *
on some systems this folder could be called
c:\Program Files (x86)\
When I booted up this morning AVG warned me that my Google Desktop had been infected with the vundo trojan and had moved the infected file to the vault. I uninstalled the program and then searched for more info on the net and came across messages on this forum about false positives.
Could you please clarify the situation for me- is it OK for me to reinstall Google Desktop and should I do anything before this to ensure that a false positive is not flagged again?
