Runtime packed fsg virus...?
I use AVG free and the resident shield sometimes detects a threat called "runtime packed fsg", used by c\windows\system32\svchost.exe. Problem is there's no way of removing or healing this threat. AVG only gives you the option to ignore it.

My computer is clean, I reformatted last week. Internet searches yield nothing. AVG website and forums are zero help. Neither AdAware or Spybot detect anything. Full AVG scan detects nothing. Yet, whenever I leave the computer idle for 20-30 minutes and come back to my desk, that resident shield alert is on the screen.

Anyone knows wtf is this and how I can get rid of it? I wouldn't mind reformatting since I have backup on an external HD but that threat was detected on that drive, too.
Do you know the problem in my life, Inspector? An abundance of leisure.
