Nay. I've used that crack since i joined here, and never had problems. In fact, it's not an AVG problem, it's windows who's been shitty. That call to microsoft, must be the firewall itself, or the system, checking for a database to identify the "threat", or at least trying to connect. The .exe has been reported a few posts above as safe, but windows-AVG combo don't recognize it. I really doubt that a small, old file has some powerful, never-known-before virus, capable of cheating all kind of antivirus programs for so many time.
