    Makes sense. AVG itself queries the cloud to verify FPs; if this functionality is not present in TrustPort, you can expect a lot of FPs.

    Reported them 3 days back. Got a manual response that they will check those soon. But nothing happened.

    At present switched off AVG engine for on-access scan.

    I think AVG engine has a tendency to report packers, password protected files and corrupted files as well. AVG itself lists these as warnings rather than detections and thus ignores such detections for the real-time scan.

    Are you getting similar detections from TrustPort?

    All those files seem to be NSIS packed and "Validace" could simply be a packer detection that is meant to be verified over the cloud. Contact TrustPort about this and send them the files (I know you contacted them already but make a stronger request this time).
