AVG has just started showing this virus as being found on my computer, at present it shows 5, in my IE temp files. I have deleted my temp files. It keeps coming back, when attempting to remove it with AVG it says it is not accesible. I have read some of the older topics on this however I am not sure if they are the same as now, especially since I am running Vista. Any advise on how to rid my computer of this is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Mark

Judging by the current rash of posts on this issue, all with AVG, I expected that this was a false positive and this post from the AVG Forum:
"Hello all,

please be informed that false positive detection "HTML/Framer" (www.google.com/recaptcha/api/js/recaptcha_ajax.js, BrowserCompAp.js) was already fixed with latest virus database update 271.1.1/3006 released 7/15/2010 6:44 AM CEST.

Please update AVG virus database and check the websites once again.

Apologies for any inconveniences.

Thank you"

proves it. Update to the latest AVG definitions and it should go away.

This is the second time AVG has had this same false positive. Last time was back in 2008.
