    I have recently installed AVG after getting rid of my previous virus protection. I performed a full system scan and it displays GBA backup tool 0.2 as a virus! A 'VBS/Agent' one to be exact.
    Has anybody else had similar experiences?

    Probably just false positive on the vbscript file.

    Not with this particular file but I've had experience with AVG making several false positives on a few files. It's pretty common, so if your AVG detects a virus it's probably a good idea to make sure it is before deleting it.

    AVG sees everything as a virus xD Scan it with a online scanner or download a trial virus of a good anti virus like nod32 or something and scan it.
