Hi Galadriel, I scan daily. I have noticed in the past that when I do Windows updates, some of the files that I listed are in the results list. Except for the "host" file. This is the first time that I've seen that one. And I have recently made some changes. Although I agree that these entries are probably not a concern, I cannot figure out how to "allow" these changes. Help with that would be great also.
How often do you scan with AVG? The files listed are all, except one, critical OS files. These would regularly be updated when you do any Windows Updates or install a new Service Pack for example. The one file this doesn't apply to, is the Hosts file. But the same is true for it. If you have any security programs that update the Hosts, say like Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster or most of the other anti-spyware applications, this file will be changed when those update.
So, more than likely, if your AV is not flagging any other files, my guess would be that these are just "normal". It is AVG's way to show you which important files were changed since the last scan.
Hope this helps,
