Avast False Positive?

Avast is showing up a trojan downloader on a full scan and the screen saver scan but not on a quick scan. The virus is in the windows error reporting, report queue folder. I can put it into the virus chest but it still shows up. If I disable windows error reporting Avast scans clean. Is this an actual virus or some false positive?

Maybe best looking in the Avast forum and see if anyone else has the same problem.

Yeah Buteman...........has been reported. See what happens on next update. Thanks.

Avast Internet Security just updated before I ran the scan but nothing found.So maybe try with the latest update and see if it still finds the problem.

Thanks Buteman. I think I'll leave error reporting disabled for a while and then enable it and check again in a couple of days.
