Skype update virus

[ Edited ]

Skype today asked if I wanted to update, the program updated successfully but at the end AVG reported a potential threat with this file in Temporary Internet Files (Windows 7): skypesetupfull[1].exe

Having googled the result, it seems ambiguous: some reports suggest that this could be a serious malware breach, others suggesting it's a legtimate skype file. Can you tell me if it is a normal skype file? Could an infection arise from a Skype update process??? Thanks.
