AVG falsely detects BioniX as virus
Due to a bug, AVG antivirus detects BioniX Wallpaper as virus. We already contacted AVG and they admitted it is a flaw in their product (see email from AVG below) and promised to fix it as soon as possible. However, one week later, the flaw is still there.
We all have to wait until they will fix it. Until then, we recommend you Kaspersky Antivirus, a much better solution than AVG. It even started to falsely detect viruses within MS Windows.
AVG famous for its false positives
Please note that AVG is the only antivirus that falsely detect BioniX Wallpaper as virus. It is sad indeed that a product that was pretty good some years ago started to degrade so much. More and more people are reporting lots of false positives from AVG.

Answer from AVG:
Thank you for your email.
Unfortunately, the previous virus database might have detected the mentioned virus in some legitimate applications. We can confirm that this was a false alarm. We have released a new virus update removing the false positive detection of the mentioned file. Please update your AVG as described in FAQ 3271:
When the update is completed, AVG will automatically restore the falsely detected file from the AVG Virus Vault to its original location.
Also, we would like inform you that your account on the AVG Whitelisting Service has been created. The AVG Whitelisting Service allows you to upload your files (especially new builds of your applications) to the secured AVG Whitelist FTP server. Files uploaded to this server are processed and after analysis "whitelisted" which prevents future false positive detections. Service is free of charge.
You can find closer information about the AVG Whitelisting Service at http://www.avg.com/whitelist
The AVG Whitelist FTP supports flat structure only, you are not allowed to create folders. If you need to use structure with subfolders ("MyFolder1/MyFolder2/abc.exe"), please pack it by some archiver (WinZip, WinRar, 7zip, etc) prior to the upload.
Processed files are removed from the FTP server and no confirmation e-mail is sent that the uploaded files have been processed.
Please inform us if you experience any issues with uploading files or with the connection. If this is the case, we would like to request a detailed issue description (including error messages or log files if applicable), and the name and version of your FTP client.
