That is not a virus, avg is detecting the heuristic file as a FP. AVG has been doing that more and more lately and they don’t want to fix it from what I have heard from other people.

I’ve mailed AVG for this.

Dear Sir/Madam,

thank you for your email.

Unfortunately, the current virus database version may detect the
mentioned virus on some legitimate applications. We can confirm that
it is a false alarm. We would like to inform you that the false

your AVG and if a new Definitions update was downloaded, check whether
the file is still detected.

If you need to restore deleted files from AVG Virus Vault you can do
it this way:

  • Open AVG user interface.

  • Click on the “Restore” button.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.
