"resident shield" warnings while on the site from AVG

i get lots of them when i’m on here, but my comp seems to go through a phase of doing that for certain sites. also, i got a real virus detected message when i downloaded Gimp believing it to be some sort of add-on from an assumption i got from a youtube tutorial for synfig and don’t know what to do. it’s infected one of my drivers so i can’t delete it

You might want to run some alternate virus scanners (Microsoft, Norton, Symantec, etc) If you continue to see issues, you may have to bite the bullet and re-install your OS from a known good configuration.
