AVG Free 8.0 Resident Shield came up with PCANDIS5.sys as  trojan Horse last
night.

Have put it in the Virus fault but can't seem to find anything about this
file?

So Trojan or False Positive?????

You are the second persond I have seen report this.  I don't know if this is a

A sample would help.

I updated AVG 8 from v1522 to 1523 and then restored the file, then scanned
the file and it came up with nothing.

Am now scanning the whole computer again to see if anything crops up........

Does seem to be a false positive???????

If a updated signature resscan of %windir%\system32\PCANDIS5.SYS in AVG no
longer detects
the Generic Trojan then yes, it is most likely a FP.

I caught the same thing yesterday (6/27) with AVG 8.0.131 virus
DB 1521/22.  Apparently, it's a false positive.  Full scan today
(virus DB 1524) reported no hit.

Since you can't tell if it is malware or not, then
submit it to www.virustotal.com, and you should
know if it is malware.
