Infected files: 1

WinRar works fine, none other virusscanner marked that file.

I had it delete that file too, I believe it was a broken EXE not a virus. But it deleted it and program still works so I have no idea as to why it would pick it up.

It's just winrar's strangely compiled dll file, nothing to worry about.

I don't think this is quite right. I got this report in Avast. If you look at http://www.frsirt.com/english/advisories/2005/1167 , there is a buffer overflow problem with this library. My understanding is it is a 3rd party library uased by several companies, including avast, probably to unpack zip archives to look for problems. I replaced it with a new version downloaded, and have had no troubles (so far).
