  1. I recently started getting a message from avg 8.0 on my laptop running vista home premium.


    the alert reads as follows

    threat detected!

    file name: c:windows/mpcodecplg.dll

    threat name: Virus found Win32/Heur
    detected on open


    details listed this:

    process name: c/program files/internet explorer/iexplore.exe
    process ID: 4368



    this happens when I open a window I have the option to move to vault but after a stern warning stating that it will cause windows to become unstable it still occurs time and time again. Does anyone know what this is?
