Once again...is AVG Remover a Trojan Dropper?

Hi! My MBAM is detecting the AVG Remover that I have used to properly uninstall my previous AVG. I upgraded my AVG Free to AVG Free 2011 and I followed the instruction from here. After succesfully installing AVG Free 2011 I then proceeded to put the AVG Remover to the Recycle Bin. Now MBAM is detecting it as Trojan Dropper. Here's the screenshot. When I search my computer for the file detected I was pointed to the AVG Remover that I have put into the Recycle Bin. What do I do with this detection? Here's the log:

I found this thread in another forum(being referred to in one of the post about this topic in this forum) and the last post seems to indicate that the Trojan Dropper being detected is not a false positive...it seems to be different from AVG Remover...well that's how I interpret the last post.

Please zip and attach a copy of the detected file to your next post.

I don't understand your instruction. Are you referring to the file "AVG Remover" which is currently in my Recycle Bin? That file can be downloaded using the link I have given...here's the link again and the AVG Remover there is the clickable named "32 bit & 64 bit archive."

Do you want me to restore the AVG Remover that I have put on my Recycle Bin? How do I zip it(I've never done it, only unzipping) for sending to this forum? I have IZArc.

Dont Unzip It!

You misunderstand me...I don't have anything to unzip.

I think I need help here because I've never ;) zipped a file before(in my life)...what I have done lots of times before, however, is unzipping a zipped file using my IZArc.

Is it not possible for the MBAM team to just download the AVG Remover from the link I have given(coz that's where i got my AVG Remover anyway) and then do their analysis of the file to settle once and for all if it indeed is a false positive or not?
