A/V software has a lot of false positives due to heuristic detections. As you can see it lists it as a Generic threat. In this case, due to GPUDetection.exe polling your system hardware. Whitelist the .exe and you should be fine. If you want to be extra diligent, you could submit it to AVG as a false positive.
