    Whenever I run my AVG scan now, the status for shell32.dll says "changed" and result says "change". Does this mean I have a virus of some kind or something? it says no virus and I've scanned with all my spyware scanners too.


    edit: I just tried the different "system scan" and it popped up asking about change, and I confirmed it and now it scans as ok. the file size had changed. but I don't understand whether it changed it back or if it's still different. it didn't explain anything. :dunno:

    I got the same thing. I am assuming its because of StyleXP.

    Upon further research (google is your friend), it seems if you have automatic updates enabled the shell32.dll comes up and changed.
