Besides the fact that delete is not the safer option. Choose send to Chest, there the file could be further analyzed, I suggest:

1. Disable System Restore and reenable it after step 3.
2. Clean your temporary files.
3. Schedule a boot time scanning with avast with archive scanning turned on.
4. Use SUPERantispyware, MBAM or Spyware Terminator to scan for spywares and trojans. If any infection is detected, better and safer is send the file to Quarantine than to simple delete than.
5. Test your machine with anti-rootkit applications. I suggest avast! antirootkit or Trend Micro RootkitBuster.
6. Make a HijackThis log to post here or, better, submit the RunScanner log to to on-line analysis.
7. Immunize your system with SpywareBlaster or Windows Advanced Care.
8. Check if you have insecure applications with Secunia Software Inspector.
The best things in life are free.

I don't have that file in my system32 folder, I think this is a

I have browseui.dll, which is a MS file, also browsewm.dll, also an MS file, but no sign of browsew.dll. I have searched all of my HDD and no sign of it.

A google search finds this is part of a fake alert process so it might well be that avast is correctly detecting it, but something is restoring it.
