How did You detect it.....did You run a Scan with avast ?
What type of Scan ?
Can you attach a screen shot of the scan result ?

Yes did a scan with Avast and did a full computer scan. Before I had Avast I had AVG. It too said I had a virus. I uninstalled it and installed avast and ran a scan and it said the same thing. Don't know how to do the screen shot.

Smells like a file infector..  What is the name of the virus that Avast gives ?
