    Hi dear AVG staff

    First, congratulations for your free release version of AVG Anti-Virus, im using now permanently with good results, great product.

    Today i installed the trial version of AVG Anti-Spyware for scan my PC and this AVG solution detect two known installers (realalt152lite.exe - Real Alternative 1.52 and EPS_setup.exe - Elite Proxy Switcher) as Trojan.Obfuscated.mu. These two installers i downloaded from the official web sites. I have tested with new version of Real Alternative (realalt175.exe) and AVG Anti-Spyware don't detect nothng.

    This is false positive?

    Any help is apreciate to me.

    Greets and thanks in advance.

    This are false detections, but they will be fixed soon with a new Signature Update for the AVG Anti-Spyware.
