AVG just had a hit on a virus in the Boinc E@H folder. Something to do with the FGRPOpencl. Im assuming its a false positive. I let AGV remove it then all those tasks showed computation error and it redownloaded more and then I got the same AGV virus warning.

I added it as an exception so Im hoping its not a real virus?

This is  false positive. I

This is  false positive. I checked the file with virustotal.com and AVG didn't detect anything (neither did the other 55 scanners). So it seems they fixed the false positive with the latest update.

Set an exception in AVG for the whole set of Boinc folders, that way any false positives will be ignored, but if they are any real viruses and try to get out of the Boinc folders they will get caught and eliminated as they should be.
