Oh, ok, so in other words:
It is a line of code you put in rgk signatures that is used to detect specific viruses, such as the one that showed up on avast and avg.

1. So, it was not virus at all that I found, but only line  of code you put in signatures used to detect it.
2. So I never had virus at all?
3. Why have they mentioned that detection was real and not false positive then?
4. Should I ignore this detection completely, im safe,right?:)

Thanks and again sorry for so many questions, this freaked me out.

Hi Faergor,

Don't worry, I understand you want to know what exactly happened to feel safe.

Exactly. So, following your first and second questions : it was not a virus but code used in signatures.

Regarding your third question, I think AVG did check the file for this specific malware pattern and without understanding it was part of a signature, labelled it as the real deal.
And about your fourth question, yes, your computer is safe.

Regards.

Ok:)
I am very very sorry for asking so many questions. I think I may be annoying with them sometimes. I am kind of a person who needs reassurement and explanation :).

I greatly appreciate your help and support. Thanks a lot.
In that case I will completely ignore the detection :)
