Please, run a boot time scanning with avast.
Also it will be good a scanning with antispyware tools, do you have any?

If you haven't already got this software (freeware), download, install, update and run it, preferably in safe mode.
1.  If using winXP AVG anti-spyware (formerly Ewido) Resident scanner during trial On-Demand after trial ends. Or SUPERantispyware On-Demand only in free version. Or Spyware Terminator Resident scanner. Or a-Squared free On-Demand only with free version(if using win98/ME).

Can you give some examples. What are the duplicate folder names, how do they differ from the original folder name ?

I was just thinking it might have been some other  change like folder-name to folder-name.bac as we have seen something like that in the forums before.

Have you tried the above software to see what if anything is found ?

If the one you mention above is only 227KB, you could check (and report the findings) the offending/suspect file at: VirusTotal - Multi engine on-line virus scanner I feel virustotal is the better option as it uses the windows version of avast (more packers supported) and there are currently over 30 different scanners.

The ones posted by David are enough...
Why don't you try to download, install, update and run them? The free versions aren't resident (disable AVG guard) and you could have all of them in your computer for on-demand scannings.
