I installed AVG when MSE turned itself off one day even though MS was great at helping me through email. I just didn't like the thought of an AV turning off on me. Been running AVG for a month now but in the last 2 weeks I have had 3 alerts and all 3 are suspected false positives. I have scanned the suspected files through http://virusscan.jotti.org/en and http://www.virustotal.com/ and the results are at the end of this post.

How do I know if this is a false positive or not? The file in question today is a game I paid for and downloaded from Steam (Portal 2).
