Win32:Adan-155 query

My Avast antivirus found this on my computer but no other antivirus (McAfee, Norton, Sophos) seems to know of its existence. I want to know how bad this thing is and where it came from; I was in Napster at the time but as soon as Avast screamed 'VIRUS ALERT' at me, lol, my AOL Spyware scanner kicked in too most unexpectedly. I sent the infected file to the virus chest (quarantine) as advised and the one made anew in my System Restore was put there too.

Any help or knowledge of this virus/worm/whatever would be greatly appreciated

Thanks VoG, but how can you tell it's just adware by looking at these files? Sorry but you know these things and I don't! I wasn't too impressed with Avast's supply of information about this adware. It just told me to put it in the virus chest and that was that. No threat risk or anything like you get with McAfee,, still I guess you get what you pay for ...

It lists it as

Win32:Adan-155 [Adw]

Other things ate listed as [Wrm] (=worm), [Trj] (=trojan) etc.
