Suggest you run the online scan for Bitdefender and allow it to quarantine or remove whatever it finds.

Install Superantispyware. Run it in safemode and allow it to quarantine or remove whatever it finds.

On the basis of the composition of a file, the sequence of significant code sequences or based on particular behavior patterns, the heuristics can determine with a high probability whether it is dealing with a harmful or virulent file.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A heuristic detection might be a false identification if one or more of the following are true:
- The program is in use for a very long time and is known to the user
- The program was installed by the user himself
- The program is from a trustworthy source

HEUR/Malware is a heuristic detection routine designed to detect common malware characteristics. Avira AntiVir recognizes unknown malware proactively using its AHeAD technology. To achieve this, Avira performs innovative structural analyzing.

On the basis of the composition of a file, the sequence of significant code sequences or based on particular behavior patterns, the heuristics can determine with a high probability whether it is dealing with a harmful or virulent file.

HEUR/Malware in particular is reported when a program seems to contain suspicious functionality.

In the unlikely occurrence of a false positives we would kindly ask for your help and send the file to our virus lab using the quarantine functionality of AntiVir...
