Today, because of Winamp crashing a lot (the computer accidentally got unplugged, corrupting something), I had to reinstall it. But as I tried to run it, AVG popped up saying that “zlib.dll” was a virus, and crashed Winamp!
Well, after running zlib.dll through VirusTotal:
Out of 36 anti-virus engines, only AVG found it as a virus. So I can confidently say it is a false positive.
Well, so what do you do? Until AVG gets around to fixing it, here’s a solution.
Also, if you quartintined the file, you can go to the Virus Vault and restore it — BUT you have to add the exception or it’ll crash again!
This is meant for AVG 8 or above.
