WinLogin Virus - What approach ?

I decided to ask here on this forum, hoping someone had the information I was looking for in regards to AVAST finding a virus in the WinLogin.exe.

I'm not quite sure what method to take I know that AVAST can take care of it using some automatic method but I don't want AVAST to take care of it only to find that my Windows7 doesn't boot here, is the information:

Location : O:\Windows\System32\install\winlogin.exe
Type: Win32:Malware-gen
