I believe that SuperAntiSpyware should be able to remove the avi.exe infection. Download the free version for home users of SuperAntiSpyware, install it and then update the definitions (by clicking the "Check for Updates" button). Then reboot your computer into Safe Mode (How to start Windows in Safe Mode) and run a scan by clicking the "Scan Your Computer" button and checking "Perform Complete Scan". After the scan is finished reboot your computer back into Normal Mode.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Anytime you come across a suspicious file which you cannot find any information, the file has a legitimate name but is not located where it is supposed to be, or you want a second opinion, submit it to jotti's virusscan or virustotal.com. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis.
