Hi, after a computer restart file lenovobatterygaugepackage.dll was detected as virus by Avast Free Antivirus on W10 Home,  a message poped up asking to move it to the vault. After a while the message dissapeared without clicking anything.
Checked that the file doesn´t appear on the Avast vault. (Avast is updated to the lastest version)

Could that file be a threat or was a misdetection? Thanks

It come as clean on VT, and Avast never warned about this file again, only that time:

Most probably a FP that got fixed.
