Whilst carrying out a scan of my USB drive using AVG Free Edition 7.5.430 -
Virus base 268.15.2/260.
AVG Free claimed "GaimPortable\App\GTK\bin\gspawn-win32-helper.exe" file to be infected with the Downloader.Generic2.YXO trojan.
Requesting a second opinion, I carried out an additional scan using Clamwin AV 0.88.5 - Virus DB Version (main:41; daily;2263). Clamwin gave the file the all clear.
I deleted the file as a precaution.

As stated again and again. As stated in the big statement at the top of the Contact and Support pages:
IT IS A FALSE POSITIVE
The issue is entirely within AVG. Please contact AVG to have them fix their annoying mistake.
