"contained a virus and was deleted."
I did a Google search and others have identified it as Malware.
Avast isn't correcting the problem.
What should I do?

Sorry I wasn't more specific. ANY and EVERY file I try to download or save gets that messsage and prevents me from downloading or saving it.
For instance, I couldn't download IE9, AVG, Excel files from my Quickbooks website, etc.
Thanks,

Dan ???
