AVG found 3 Trojans on it's last sweep, but I recognize the files. ( 2 AdAware program loaders and a plvx2cleaner Plug-in) Should I assume these files have been corrupted, or that they are false positives. How do you decide?

1) rescan with another AV product; -or-
2) reinstall the applications suspected then rescan with the same AV and see if there any differences
After all is invested in correctness, then how does it stand with truth?

Yes do this, I'm thinking its a False Positive. I doubt these files are corrupted! Does adaware still work??
