    During a comprehensive scan, AVG Anti-Spyware (v7.5.0.50 Free) with 636,277 Signatures (updated 13 February 2007) gave two detections of traces of Dropper.Agent.bct associated with ProcessExplorer, specifically procexp.exe. None of the following applications showed any malware: CounterSpy 2, TrojanHunter , SuperAntiSpyware, and NOD32.

    I am assuming that these detections are false positives, but verification would be most useful.

    I am getting the same false positive on procexp.exe (Windows XP-SP2, HE). I'm getting it from wytnhFrP.ads that is part of procexp.exe.

    We fix this false-positive with the next signature update.

    We're sorry for the inconvenience.
