AVG Free 9.0 - Objects detected discrepency?

I noticed when scanning only ONE file, sometimes the results will show TWO 'total objects scanned'. This usually occurs when I scan a single video file of any sort that's not in a .zip or .rar. Now, the program didn't reveal a virus or spyware, and my computer runs fine, but is this something to be concerned about? I'm just curious as to why one file is sometimes detected as two objects?

I'm thinking it can be one of perhaps two things: One, the program has scanning issues and therefore sometimes has a tendency to scan certain video types improperly. Or two: A hidden file that is either harmless or malicious is somehow attached to the video file, so that's why it's showing up as two objects.

I'm sure if you use AVG FREE 9.0 and get videos off the net, you'll encounter something similar to what I'm seeing.

BTW: This (possible) 'total objects scanned' error only occurs in a very small percentage of my video files. BUT, why does it do that is what I want to know.
