I am running XP Pro SP2.I have just upgraded my AVG to 7.5 and carried out a scan which came up with one hit; sporder.dll and Downloader.Agent.GPZ. AVG deleted both.I have `Googled` both identities and found that sporder.dll is, apparently, a required part of Windows click here and that Agent.GPZ is malware click hereThese two statements appear to conflict as, according to AVG one equates to the other. Can anyone provide any clarification or suggestions as to a way forward to gain better information?Thanks in anticipation.
See click hereI think that if sporder.dll was in c:\windows\system32 it might have been legitimate but in another folder it would have been malware.
Thanks for comming back so fast.I have just looked in c:\windows\system32 and the sporder.dll is not present. I have downloaded a copy, should I just put that into the file?I also found this click here which indicates there may be a problem without it!!
I don't have that file. However it can't do many harm to put it in the system32 folder.
I meant "any harm" !!
Thanks for your help. I shall put it in the folder and see what AVG does the next time.Take care.

Very interesting.Looks very much as if AVG have introduced a false positive somehow. It`s only the first I`ve seen from them which is why it makes it a bit more concerning when it does crop up.The link from the link (follow me?) you provide click here makes interesting reading. Talk about bite the hand..........Thanks again for your help.
