I have just downloaded and installed AVG's latest update. Version 7.0.308, definition file 266.9.0, release date of 3/31/05. It has detected HijackThis.exe as Trojan Horse Back Door. Small.28.AO. Since I have been using HijackThis for many years with no problems, I think this may be a "false positive". I've run "google" searches but can't find any info. Since I have the AVG free version, I can't directly contact AVG. Geekstogo may want to contact AVG about this issue. Meanwhile I'll restore HijackThis. Let me know. Thanks.
