What virus name is reported?
What is the location of the file? (full path)
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

So I assume you can just move the beast to the Virus Chest, that's all there's to do for now...

That is correct; however, it continues to return.

You can set the on-access scanner protection level to High (click the avast (a) ball tray icon to do this) - this way, the file will be detected immediately after saved to the HDD.

Yes, but it would be nice if there was a better way of dealing with it:)
