Grisoft AVG False Positive

We have heard that earlier today there was a false positive involving Grisoft AVG antivirus product and certain files related to Windows XP SP1.  From the report received, AVG was reporting the file C:\i386\REG.EXE, installed under some XP SP1 based systems, as a virus.   As there is a free version of AVG used/installed on many K12 school, College/University and home computers, some of our readers may experience issues with this false positive.

Unfortunately, I do not see any confirmed information on the AVG website.  If anyone can confirm the details shared to us earlier, or finds a news entry at Grisoft, please share with us and we will update this diary.
