    I had this today as well. I was like What the!!!

    Anyway not to worry apparently, itunes is not a super secret mega virus as we all suspected.. or is it?

    Exact same thing happened to me last night. Just update your AVG definitions and you're all set. Maybe Microsoft bought AVG?

      I had some people on Teamspeak and Xfire hit me up about this.
      Told them the best thing to do is switch to Avast!, which is almost always ranked better than AVG as far as free anti-virus goes.

      On guy had actually uninstalled AVG and installed Norton instead. I tried my best not to laugh and I won't name names :D

        Avast here for 5+ years, awesome AV software.

          I got sick of false positives in AVG (although I consider flagging Itunes as a mildly truthful editorial) so I switched to Avira. I like it better than Avast! and certainly a lot better than AVG.

            i would hardly say a lot better.

            AVG has been one of the few that has gotten many viruses that slip through many other AV apps out there.

            Any not to turn this into an AV debate because it's not. I think it's funny this happened since many people itunes is a legal virus lol.
