Default AVG offers infected users free year of service

AVG ANNOUNCED yesterday that it would be offering a free year of service after its antivirus software got confused and misidentified a key Windows system file as malware.

The security vendor identified earlier this week that user32.dll was coming up as a generic Trojan which caused a warning pop-up asking if the user wanted to delete it – unfortunately for those who say ‘yes’ they were stuck in an endless reboot cycle.
