Have a look at this thread in the Avast Forum.

Looks like your dealing with a false positive.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

This has been a known problem dating back to early 2005. You need to disable avast! while scanning with Panda because Panda uses unencrypted virus definitions which avast! detects as a real virus.
