AVG Reports Adware Startpage.D and Startpage.E in adxloader.dll and adxloader64.dll
This is probably a 'false positive', but customers will be alarmed

We recently upgraded to 9.3.6125.0, and today we discovered that AVG antivirus software flags adxloader and adxloader64 as carrying adware.

If you don't have AVG handy to confirm, this nifty website tests about a zillion different antivirus program against an uploaded file.

Of all the programs tested, only AVG reports this. This is clearly their problem, but you are probably best positioned to alert them.

Thank you, Ira!

I've sent them the files for checking; note that I reproduced the issue with files from Add-in Express for IE and .NET version 9.2.6124. When I have something from them, I'll let you know.
