Virus scanning test result

After scanning a portion of my harddrive with the latest AVG updates, I
received notice in the test reults that the shell32.dll in c:\windows\system
had changed.
Do I need to be concerned with this, and does anyone have any idea what may
have lead to this change ?

Thanks in advance

It is normal that AVG shows that files, the MBR or Boot record to have
changed. These are done during normal maintainance, when you or windows
updates files or have had to correct errors on the drive. The only time that
you should worry is if they also show as infected.

To get AVG to quit showing them as changed, open the AVG Test Center, click
the F3 key on your keyboard and tell it to accept the changes. If it still
shows something as changed after this.. delete the file named AVG7QT.DAT in
the %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\avg7\ folder and AVG will rebuild it
the next time it is run.

The %ALLUSERSPROFILE% is different for each version of Windows. The
following are the typical locations for XP and Win9x

XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg7
Win9x -C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\avg7"

Remember,Google can be a big help and save you time.
