VTune 9.1 - virus false positive?

VTune 9.1 - virus false positive?

I am using Vtune 9.1 (build 210) on a XP-32 PC with a quad core i7 processor.
I am attempting to do a Call Graph profile of my own program.
Whenever I start the process by clicking VTune's [Run Activity] button I
immediately get a warning from my AVG Resident Shield (AVG ver
10.0.1209) as follows:

If I click "Move to vault" then VTune goes on to work perfectly. The
Move to vault appears to be just temporary though, because the next time
I click [Run Activity] I will get the same sequence all over again,
with the same filename and the same location.

AVG never complains about viruses at any other time despite me doing a
very wide variety of things on my computer. This has been happening for
a few days now.

Could this be a false positive? Should I worry?

EDIT: does Vtune need advapi32_c__windows_system32.dll to be running in order to work properly?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Since old VTune Performance Analyzer use binary instrumentation on user, system module to profile data. For example, system32.dll will be copied and instrumented in Cache - it will NOT influence other application to use *normal* system32.dll. This is not a threat! Don't worry about this.
