And you are 100% sure that this is not malware or an infected file ?

100% No. 99% at most. But I searched the filesystem and registry for anything matching the visible string of that flagged ID and found nothing matching it; all other scans report no problems; and the re-installed instance of avast! has not repeated that popup -- or any other.

Just so. And you have my word that if it does recur, I'll generate logs with each of the indicated scanners and humbly post them here. THX JLJ

Not a problem, it is just that there is a variant of zero access running around that uses windows installer as a hidey hole
