Ok, wanted to provide some information regarding GriSoft AVG and LovSAN.
I spoke with people at GriSoft who vehemently denied their AV was using anything as lame as I suggested. I checked again with the reporter, who had sent me the files, and that person is unsure how the files got labeled as cleaned. That person did say that the program did not report them as infected, only that they thought they had been cleaned. Since I don't use the product, I assumed that person recognized the cleaned files as cleaned by GriSoft.
Anyway, I sent the files to GriSoft and they say there's no indication they were cleaned by GriSoft AVG, or that they were ever infected or could be detected as infected.
So, bottom line, my apologies for my harsh statements...;-] I have firmly slapped myself upside the head!
