I am using windows vista home premium.
Just today, i noticed that my avg anti virus has detected a filename called "GPIproxy.dll" which is lodged in the path c:\program files\intervideo\dvd8\GPIproxy.dll

it always detects two instances of this file. both in the inter video folder.

please help me. Is this a false positive?

Looks legit according to the info here.

If you suspect a file to be a false positive. Test the file at [virusscan.jotti.org] and if it is a false positive, archive (zip, arc, tar etc) the file using a password and email a copy to virus@grisoft.com with a brief description as well as the password you used to archive it with.

If it is a false positive , turn off heuristic scanning for the time being. When Grisoft adjusts the virus definitions you can turn it back on. If turning off Heuristics still doesn't allow access to the file while testing and emailing... disable the resident shield temporarily.

Go to jotti's virusscan as instructed. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
