I think AVG just did an update. I have AVG 2013 Free Edition. I also have Spybot S & D. Spybot popped up an error/warning that a thread was stopped. The log states:

9/9/2013 9:27:36 PM Encountered and terminated FalcoPickFlip in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\AVG 0913a Campaign\AVG-Secure-Search-Update-0913a.exe!

Does AVG have malware? Anyone else have a similar situation? What did you do to remove it? Screenshot of pop up message is also attached.

Hello Tom, welcome to GeeksToGo!

Whilst this appears to be a false positive, this can only be confirmed by Spybot and hopefully they will release information about it soon.

In future, try to refrain from posting on multiple sites. One thread at the Spybot forums would have sufficed, four is unnecessary :)



P.S. Nice name, lol :thumbsup:
