Today I ran AVG 2011 for its regular full scan and it picked what it said was a trojan:

C:/program files/(x86)/intel/intel® management engine components/UNS/UNS.exe
This is the file that AVG claims that needs to be removed. I also ran a full malwarebtyes anti-malware scan and it came up with nothing. It also after I told AVG to remove it, it claimed to remove it but after another scan was still there. So I'm starting to think this is not a trojan but a system file AVG keeps picking up wrong.
Can anyone enlighten me if this file is indeed a Trojan?

I think it may be a false positive. The first time I saw this coming from AVG was around the same time you posted.

It looks like AVG may have figured it out now. I ran an update in AVG and the trojan is no longer detected.

Anytime you come across a suspicious file or suspect a detection may be a false positive, get a second opinion by submitting it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
