What is your reason for asking? If you scanned with AVG and it reported FCL_DLL.dll to be a source of infection (Win32/Heur), I only know to tell you it has done so in the past. It was a confirmed false positive.
This is not the first time the question has been asked. As far back as 2007 some were reporting files related to Cyberlink's PowerDVD to be infected. Most were false positives. Some scanners detected an Aurora file. IF present and IF from Direct Revenue, it's considered adware. To the best of my knowledge. these instances were few and far between.
More recently, certain Norton products were reporting RIKVM 38F51D56.sys to be a rootkit. More often than not .. Norton Power Eraser.
The following is noted in a thread titled "Is this a virus RIKVM_38F51D56.SYS ? at the Norton Community Forum:
'It is a legitimate Cyberlink file. Norton Power Eraser is more aggressive than the regular Norton security products and possible false positives are something you need to be aware of when using the product. You always need to verify that the items NPE suggests to remove, are, in fact, malicious.'
The original poster also posted at the Cyberlink Forum. (Is RIKVM_38F51D56.SYS a legit Power DVD file or a virus? ) The Cyberlink Administrator indicated it was a false positive.
Lastly.. and only my opinion. I found the thread at the Norton forum here. The site which purports the file to be a rootkit, I find unreliable and highly suspect. Putting aside the fact they've spammed our forums, see what those at Web of Trust (WOT) have to report about the site.
If the reason you asked is because you were considering installing it and IF.. AVG has a problem with it, I would suggest uploading the file/s to VirusTotal or another service which analyzes suspicious files.
With hopes this was.. "enough lights shed"...
