Every time I run AVG virus scan the first thing that comes up is

Object- C:\windows\system 32\kernel 32.DLL

result- Change

Status- Changed

Is this a good or a bad thing? Should I do anything about it?
Have I done something wrong?

Try these two small programs.

Ccleaner slim (run "Cleaner" and "Issues")

Advanced Windows Care

I recommend reinstalling your AVG software, updating it (i.e. downloading the latest virus definition files), and then trying to run it successfully without the error message appearing.

Windows and Windows-based programs are unfortunately quite prone to cryptic error messages. Then again, alot of software is.

Nope, none of those things worked. It still comes up when I do a scan.

Grisoft, the makers of AVG say as long as the report only shows a change and not "Infacted" you shouldn't worry about it.

To get AVG to quit showing them as changed, open the AVG Test Center, click the F3 key on your keyboard and tell it to accept the changes. If it still shows something as changed after this.. delete the file named AVG7QT.DAT in the %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\avg7\ folder and AVG will rebuild it the next time it is run.

The %ALLUSERSPROFILE% is different for each version of Windows. The following are the typical locations for XP and Win9x

XP - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\avg7
Win9x -C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\avg7

The f3 key thing did it. Thanks, it was a pain in the you know what when it kept showing up.
