    From searching in Google, other people who reported the same problem found it to be a false-positive.


    Here is a quote from somebody named ruby in another forum.

    "This happened for me about the files of Symantec AntiVirus Corp. Ed. version 10. In zipped form there was complaint about Trojan.Aavirus. In uncompressed form no virus was detected. After I deleted the whole exclude list in Preferences, Filters, Exclude Matching Filenames, then the VIRSCAN9.DAT file was detected as contaminated with Trojan.Aavirus. A false alarm. Apparently on files in zipped form the exclude list, which contains *.DAT, is not effective. Finally the whole exclude list was restored. "
