> AVG update cripples some Windows XP systems (CNET)
> <>
> On Tuesday an update for AVG 8 suggested that a Windows system file is a
> Trojan horse, and users who delete the file form the system could leave
> their Windows XP systems endlessly rebooting or unable to reboot at all.
> The problem only affects users of AVG 8 products running the Dutch,
> French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish language versions of Windows
> XP. AVG immediately sent out a corrected update to its customers,
> including those using the free editions of AVG.
> A representative for AVG said, "AVG is actively working to remedy the
> problem some users are experiencing related to the most recent update to
> commercial and free versions of AVG 7.5 and AVG 8.0 in some languages. A
> number of users who installed the update mistakenly received a warning
> that the Windows system file user32.dll product version 5.1.2600.3099
> was infected with a Trojan virus and were prompted to delete a file
> essential to the operation of Windows XP."
> In response, the Czech antivirus company has posted details and a fix
> tool on its site.
> For users unable to use their Windows XP machines, AVG says they "should
> contact their AVG reseller or ask a friend to download the information
> and fix tool for them."
> AVG has suffered some embarrassing glitches of late. Last month, an AVG
> update declared some ZoneAlarm firewall files to be part of a Trojan
> horse . In July AVG had to reconfigure its Linkscanner tool after
> various Web sites complained about the increased traffic as a result of
> the tool's proactive scanning for malware.
