    When i want to see this thread with the subject "Ruleset for svchost.exe!",the screenshot will show you how a watch dog AVG is.(AVG Pro with CIS 5.3 on Win 7 x32...just for the record.).Maybe an overreacting?
    Not posted on their forums.To lazy to sign up.

    Hi JoeBlack40,
    I took a look at the thread and there doesn't appear to be anything suspicious, but I did not have time to follow all the links. It is probably a false positive so you should contact AVG and report the detection to their research team for investigation.

    Hi Coldmoon

    Well...all i can say is that the Online Shield is still blocking the thread.I think i will sign up on their forums and report this.
    And it's odd.Link scanner didn't find anything and the Online Shield did....

    That's because the online shield/scanner verifies for malware, while LinkScanner for exploits.

    According to the image you show, it detects some virus. I'm not saying anything is wrong with that thread... I couldn't spot anything, anyway o_O

    Have you reported it? Or, won't bother at all? :D

    The thread has only 3 links ,one of them a strange one , svchost bla bla and 2 pictures hosted on the forum.What could of triggered the thing ?!

    Comodo which you say you are using ,said anything ?

    It happened to me to have the HIPS pop up on wilderssecurity temp hider thread in the past as well as on a softpedia ro forum thread in the past.

    By the way few weeks ago it happened to view some you tube videoes and log in to the avast forum and the system on which i usually browse to start BSOD alureon codes likes at every restart after that ,so web is a dangerous place even sandboxed now days ,you never know where the badluck rabbit pops up :)

    Also malware can be delivered per specific IP range if i m not mistaken .
    Or maybe you were using a proxy ?

    Why would you use AVG is my last question .
