AVG and Rising signatures update detects Windows files as malware | Zero Day | ZDNet.com

It was bound to happen... the False Positive (aka "type I error"). It gets nastier when the files that are wrongly detected as infected are your windows files and in the process cause the machine to continuously reboot. The answer? QA - test, test, test. AVG should have tested this signature update and (longshot coming here) users should have tested the update and have a way to revert back.
