Are you using Windows XP?
Can you schedule a boot-time scanning?
Start avast! > Right click the skin > Schedule a boot-time scanning
Select for scanning archives.
Boot.

If I were you, I'll boot in Safe Mode (F8 while booting) and run avast! from there or, at least, run a deep avast! scanning and other antispywares applications too.

It's not stupid, it's a virus  :P

How can I start avast when I boot with f8 ?
SafeMode (repeatedly press F8 while booting): http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315222
Then run avast! from Start Menu > avast! antivirus > avast! link

I know it's a generic answer but, can't you scan your system with antispywares and antitrojans applications?
Ad-Aware, Spybot Search and Destroy, A-squared, Ewido or Microsoft AntiSpyware (freewares).
TrojanHunter or TDS-3 (sharewares).

Antispyware applications (freeware): download, install, update and run it.
Ad-Aware
Spybot Search and Destroy
Spywareblaster
A-squared
Ewido
Webroot Spy Sweeper:
Microsoft AntiSpyware
X-Cleaner Free

For antiTrojans see the sharewares bellow (download, install, update and run it, you can test it for some days):
TrojanHunter
TDS-3

Please try to repair avast!, it seems like damaged VPS/program, because  this virus is quite old (1995).

Hi there, i have got the same problem here today.
I downloaded some binaries from newsgroups with the program grabit, avast said a .par2 file contained this virus.
I thought hey not in my par 2 file i need, i will scan and try to repair later (pretty dumb....), I just thought as long as i don't run it there is no problem.

Since then i got the same message everytime i connect to a web page.
When i drop the connection and reload the page it does work.

I have had everything updated, firewall, microsoft anti spyware, router firewall.

Don't worry, i am a microsoft mcp, so i should be able to solve it  ;D, i just dont dare to reinstall avast because that's the only thing that blocks the activity's of the virus i think and i would have to de-install it first?

Haven't seen any other activity on my network connection yet, i quickly emptied the allowed apps in my firewall so i can monitor that to.

Well i'll let you know my solution for me.

greetings M

Hey im getting this same problem too. Started last night after i installed a demo of F.E.A.R.

Anyways,  I did all the scans/updates/checks i could. 
I loaded in safemode:
- Did a thorough scan with Avast
- Did a full scan with trendmirco's HouseCalls
- Ran Spyware Doctor

And Still, when i go back to normal windows mode, i get the virus pop up on all the pages i visit!

any help would be greatly appreciated. thx

I solved it on my pc.
Chocoloco is indeed right.
What did i do?
I scanned my pc with symantec online virus scanner -> nothing.
Scanned it with Avast normal scan and then with the boot up scan (inclusive archives) -> nothing.
I re-installed avast form the website en then through the add/or remove programs in windows.
So i don't know which did the job.
Anyways, then i did a reboot and it's gone.
I still think it's strange that a .par2 file damages Avast?
Or why is anyone spreading 10 year old virusses? Or wasn't anyone doing that?
Very weird, but it's solved so to seem.
bye, M  8)

I did the same, but it does not work out, so the problem (even writing this message) is still there, Ard

Well i got rid of it (for a bit) after i uninstalled and reinstalled Avast! 

Now about 1 hr later, it is back again, so i uninstalled/reinstalled again, and its temporarily gone.

Does anyone know a better solution then reinstalling the program?
