Today after my weekly AVG scan completed AVG produced the following warning:


Suspected malware by identity in file C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\X64\3\OLD\1\PRINTCONFIG.DLL, rated as a Medium threat.  Removal failed.


I haven't yet noticed any issues with my system, just concerned regarding the warning.


Completed a Malwarebytes scan with no infection reported.


System Info:


HP Pavilion e-084ca   AMD A10-5750M   8GB Ram   1 TB HD

Windows 8.1 (updates current)


Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

OK. Uploaded and scanned file at Virustotal.com.  0/53 detections - all green check marks.  Does this indicate the file is safe, i.e.false positive?


Btw, thanks for the assistance Broni.
