    AVG Reporting MRT Threat

    AVG is picking up on an 'infected' file, but not sure if its accurate.

    MRT.exe in sys32 folder is being reported as infected.

    I think this is Microsoft Removal Tool and suspect that AVG is picking up on the software database?

    I tried to tell it to ignore and let it passed, but it refuses

    Yeah, that happens regularly. Remove it, Microsoft releases a new version with each update, so not a problem and once they get signatures updates, it should not report it anymore, for some time.
