Are you experiencing any other problems apart from that ?

If not then upload all versions of explorer in the virus chest to Avast as false positives

Then place an exception for explorer

No, I've had no other problems.

I can't move explorer.exe to the chest, but the other explorers (backups and edit) have been moved and uploaded as false positives.

Thanks for your help. I wish I'd come to you first instead of spending almost 4 days straight trying to fix a problem that wasn't there! :)

No problem, it is an unusual one this as it appears that the heuristics do not like some element of the programme

Test the files in the chest every few days and hopefully fairly soon they will show as clean
