    I have had a problem with AVG catching changes...:( These are the two changes that it is either fixing or just making me aware of it trying to be changed...Here are the two items...:::

    C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    and
    c:\windows\system32\shell32.dll

    Now when AVG runs the course it comes up with no viruses and they do not show up in my log or vault...

    I have run an online BitDefender scan and it comes up clean...

    I have MVP HOSTS Files which i was having problems with as seen in this thread...

    I have done everything that i could think of including redoing my HOSTS file but i still keep getting these changes.....I also have a new HOST file named IMHOST...can someone please advise me on what to do to figure out what is causing this problem...???...:(
