I hardly ever pick up any virus's but in the last couple of days AVG as
picked up the following:

Worm/VB.AUG ~ Path C:\System Volume
Information\_Restore\RP468\A0129682.exe
Detected one at 12:44 and a similar variation at 15:44, wasn't even
using the computer at the time.

Yesterday another Worm/VB.AUG ~ Path c:\....\Firefox Setup 1.5.0.3.exe,
.4.exe and similar (6 in total)

7th March. Trojan Horse Generic3.GOH ~ WWLib.zip,
\WallWatcher\MSWINSCK.OCX, similar one in System32 directory, also both
appeared in the folder where I download to.

Are these false positives on AVG or is something going on out there?

False Positives.

I would be willing to guess they are false positives.  My experience is  
that since AVG took over the old Ewido scanner, it has produced a lot of  
FP's.  I can scan with NOD32 & SuperAntispyware and they find nothing,  
then AVG will find 7 or 8 pieces of 'malware,' all of which I know to be  
legit files.  I wouldn't be too worried about it, but would suggest using  
multiple scanners to see if the others hit on the files also.

Thanks for your replies. SuperAntispyware found nothing.
