Somehow you have subscribed to google analytics.  A work round is to add the following to your host file

# [Google Inc]
127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com

Please read (and if needed continue) in this thread: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=74637.0

Sadly, I got exactly zero response (except for a useless automated reply) from both hosting companies about this until now.  >:(

Google analytics tracks your surfing movements via a JS file hence Avast will alert on it.  At some stage either a programme you have downoaded or a service you have subscribed to has placed the JS on your system

Please, read the thread I have referred to as well. This is NOT the real Google Analytics causing this issue.
