AVG Thinks Windows is a Virus

Oops.  AVG anti-virus software is telling users that user32.dll on Windows XP systems are infected and should be deleted.  Problem is, the result is a false positive and deleting the file cripples an XP system.  The problem is fixed with a patch to releases of AVG.  The most current AVG software is available here.  The Washington Post fills in the details.  [MG]
