    Hiya all,

    I've just done a scan on AVG AntiVirus, and for the first time in ages, has come up with something. Which I've listed below:

    Object
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

    Result
    Change

    Status
    Changed

    Is this something to be concerned about? Is it something that just happens from time to time.

    Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

    regards,

    Terry ;)

    I see the same results when I scan, after installing some of the Microsoft updates (The OS kernel is modified). I believe it's ok (I'm no expert; hopefully I'll be corrected if I'm wrong).

    Hello,
    All is well. Don't get excited. Although recently AVG have spiked up the heuristics, which cause some annoyances.
