We have a team working on a project in VB.NET that also includes socket communication and HTTP Listeners. (We have a group of applications that are intercommunicating between Sockets).

But a few days ago, we received a message that AVG (anti-virus) was showing one as a threat (executable).

How can we solve this problem? Should we replace the sockets with NamedPipes?

    What are your requirements? I can't imagine recoding an application because one anti-virus flags it as malicious.

    If you can provide more specifics we can probably help you further.
