I'm quite sure it's a false-positive considering that Linux binaries won't run on Windows. AVG's heuristic just found something strange, though it couldn't do any harm for said reason. I'd love to see a Linux kernel infecting Windows though. :p
Also nice you're still running Windows XP; The best Windows there was.

Hi AndresC2,
Glad to hear dCore-wheezy is running well on your old hardware.  I had first planned to pull dCore ports when their respective upstream Debian or Ubuntu releases were no longer officially supported with security updates, and that is surely the case with the 6 month Ubuntu interim releases.  But with older dCores like dCore-wheezy and dCore-trusty, folks that are using these now are usually using them for a desktop on older and resource limited hardware.  And who have things like graphics cards that are dropped from the more recent Debian/Ubuntu releases because of the versions of Xorg they use. 

I have a good mind to leave the LTS Debian/Ubuntu based dCores up for as long as their repos are available to pull packages from.  They will still be good for many types of usage.
