This morning when I woke my computer from sleep AVG FREE 2011 reported the C:\Program Files\Lenovo\System Update\suservice.exe was infcected with Trojan Horse PWS.Generic8.Bhik or something and well it seems rather strange, I have AVG installed for a few years now and never a problem with the computer and it seem even more unlikely that this file would be infected ... I'll see if I can post a pic, anyways Im not worried or seeking help to deal with it, Im a technicain by trade and im just curiously asking if you aware of any such virus? Personally I think it flalse positive and have seen it happen wiith some manufactures files ....

Based on the name of the threat detected, it looks like might be a generic signature used by AVG for a password-stealing trojan horse computer program. Based on where it was found, I am guessing it is a false positive alarm, e.g., a report of piece of malicious software where none is actually present.
I would suggest contacting AVG's technical support and checking with them; they should be able to verify this is the case and, if so, explain how to update the software to resolve the issue.

Sorry, my mistake it is version 9 not 10 and I had already added the file to the excludes list last night ... Again I only asked incase there was an issues and it was widely known about a virus that hijacked this service but there is not. It is a false positive, I sent the file to viruse total this morning and it last scan was 0/42 in 2009 and 0/43 now which includes AVG, strange ... So I removed it from the excludes list again an it's not being detected anymore since the update this morning ...
Best of luck and thanks for your intrest
