This was from the AVG Forum which you can find through Google or others.
"CHANGED FILE ALERTS

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.
