A problem has been reported by various sites about a recent update of the AVG antivirus software. The update incorrectly deletes a critical file in Windows XP.
The PC could no longer boot without the system file that it deletes which is user32.dll. The company admitted that it was detected as a false positive and that some users on the AVG forums offered step-by-step solutions. The solution requires the Windows installation disk.
The spokesman said, “We have immediately released a new virus update (270.9.0/1778) that removes the false positive detection on this file. Please update your AVG and check your files again.”
