Hi all! New here, great site!
I have a question about a test result from an AVG Free scan.
When I look at the results list I see "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll" and in the "Result" column it says "Change". is this a problem that should be investigated? It just recently began to show "Change" it used to say "OK" in the result column. Any advice? Thank you in advance!!

I'll stick my neck out and say no, its not a problem. Shell32.dll is a Windows System file and its quite possible it has been altered by Windows Update, or the installation of a program. If you were to find that file, right click it, and select Properties and look at the size. Also note the Created and Modified Dates. Is this Modified Date coincidental with a Windows Update? Go to Windows Update and view your Installation History to confirm this.
