When I run the Avg free antivirus, it's showing

File:
Shell32.dll

Result/Infection:
Change

Path:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll


It say though that there are no threats found.


Object summary
Threats found: 0
Cleaned: 0
Moved to vault: 0
Deleted: 0
Errors: 0

Do I just ignore this, is it because of some of the security programs i have installed, Is this a registry error of some sort?

Here's a list of the things i use.

CCleaner
Tracks eraser Pro
Ad aware SE
Spybot search and destroy
Key Scrambler Pro
Windows live one care saftey scanner

Hello Optimos welcome to Geeks to go.

I use AVG as well and i have the same thing as you do,(i have 4 of them show up when i do my scan including Shell32.dll) i was looking around and found that sometimes when microsoft has those updates it changes things in those files and AVG lets you know about it.As far as i know there is nothing wrong with it(mine has been like that for close to a year now).I think you can just ignore it.Sorry i don't know how to get it to stop showing that.

Hope that helps :)

Thanks for your help, it is greatly appreciated. As long as im not having anyproblems, which im not. I will just ignore it. I just wiped my drive clean and reloaded my operating system for a clean start.
