Here lately after checking my computer with AVG virus there is five files: Kernel32.dll, wsock32.dll, user32.dll, shell32.dll and ntoskml.exe that has change under the result column and changed under status column and until recently it has not been there, I have deleted some files out but none that shouldn't have been. Could anyone tell me if this is something to worry about or what?? My computer has been running slower lately also. It is a Toshiba Satellite with XP intel inside celeron.

I noticed that my partition table MBR, boot sector, kernel32.dll, shell32.dll, ntoskrnl.exe all say changed.

It is normal that AVG shows that files, the MBR, or Boot record to have changed. These are done during normal maintainance, when you, or Windows, updates files, or have had to correct errors on the harddrive. The only time that you should worry is if they also show as infected.

To get AVG to quit showing them as changed, open the AVG Test Center, click the F3 key on your keyboard and tell it to accept the changes. If it still shows something as changed after this.. delete the file named AVG7QT.DAT in C:\ and AVG will rebuild it the next time it is run.

My computer has been running slower lately also.
