I too had a full scan report this as a high risk item.  This file has been on the PC since 2/2007 according to the properties information.  When I tried to move it to the chest, I get this message:  Error:  Access is denied(5).  This is on an Acer laptop, and I purchased it 12/2006.  Is it possible this is an Acer API?  There is one that runs every time the computer is booted.

probably it's a false positive. what's the file name?

Is Acer eDataSecurity Management on that acer laptop.

I reported the same file :  http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=68836.0

I'm not using Acer eDataSecurity Management (disabled) on this particular acer laptop.  And I din't get the message:  Error:  Access is denied(5) when  moving the file to the chest.
