    Virus in Jasc Paintshop Pro8

    I went to use my Jasc paintshop pro8 Product tour to find something out when I got this ...warning from AVG (screenshot)
    It's the last place I'd expect a problem and AVG won't let me in. I scanned the file for it with another anti-virus called Malwarebytes, that reported nothing. Could AVG be acting over zealous or something?
    Using the 'move to vault' facility' moves the whole file.

    False positives aren't unkown. Have you looked around the net to see if it's a common one?
    I use avast! (free) without an issue.

    Unless some clever software replaced or inserted code into PSpro8 (not impossible) then all should be well. I'd ditch that installation and try to install a fresh copy elsewhere (new folder) and see if AVG catches anything. If it does then you know it's not an insertion of malware, but over zealous AVG. (No chance insert on CD).

    I don't use PSPro, but any chance there is a plugin that might be triggering it?

    In the end I worked my way around the problem without using the Product tour, I didn't fancy changing anti-virus over this, I couldn't find anything in AVG's own library about it's 'find'. Thanks for the help though!
