Problem was with bad Avast update (110411-1). Check your Engine & Definition update status and if you have that one, run another update. Avast had their update servers down for a little while to prevent further spread of this issue, but they are starting to come back up with 110411-2 update, which fixed the issue. May have to try to run updates several times until you hit a server that is able to provide that update. Had two client with this issue, both fixed by update.

It's likely a false positive. There's literally HUNDREDS of people on Twitter complaining of the same issue, there's a thread here @ Bleeping: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic390532.html

Virus def 110411-1 is FUBAR. Update your virus definitions to version 110411-2 & you should be OK
