Run a scan of Malwarebytes, run it in safemode if needed
Replace Avast by MSE

Not sure MSE is any better - quite the opposite.

Malwarebytes is a great idea to use in addition to any resident a/v.

free version is on the left - the grey download button

If avast! did not detect it, how did you know it was a virus? Anyway, if it is, start in Safe Mode and then go to the location and see if you can find it. Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free and run a FULL SCAN. Then, download SUPERAntiSpyware and run a "Complete Scan" (Note: All these actions can be done in Safe Mode but it can also be performed in Windows' normal state.

i also suggesting to add some kind of sandbox software. You can try Sandboxie Free or Bufferzone Pro which became free. So when you're browsing, nothing to your real HD.
