It definatly is a virus. The ace mega codec pack does not contain virusses, nor is anything in it detected as a virus. I think you have downloaded a altered version. And for info about a virus > just type in the name of the virus and there is enough for you to read :D

where did you download this ?

- What WIN do you have ? Are all ServicePacks and Windowsupdates applied ? Please CHECK !!

- Where exactly was the infected File found (full path/folder/filename, e.g. like c:\Windows\system32\virusfile.exe) ?
You'll get this info from the Alert/PopUp window or from avast's report/Log-files. If you can't start avast, look for the info in the logfiles in the avast (sub-)folders and
in the EventLog of Win XP / 2000: Controlpanel -> Administration -> Event-log

- test it with Onlinescanners from Trend & KAV (see below) to check, pause avast shield for this temporarily
if they don't detect anything in it, please send the file or the exact download link to


Also, entering
 into the SEARCH above will give you loads of further advice

also work through the "VirusRemoval" below, and read the USER's FAQ in Off-topic

there is some info on it here, .
 If avast didn't remove it i suggest you send it to the virus chest then email it to Alwil software (avast) so avast scanner can remove it in the futur.
