    Cleared the cache with CCleaner. We'll see what happens.

    it only mattered so that you don't have clear cache again because of the alert :)

    So this was probably in the cache, and Avira monitors the cache, proactively, right. Cool.

    have you closed the browser and removed the cache? reboot but i don't think it would be necessary. What is reported location of that file?

    Finally!

    Action(s) taken:
    The file was moved to the quarantine directory under the name '4e6674e9.qua'.


    What should I do now?

    Nothing. All done, only delete the quarantine if you want.

    I have multiple instances of the Trojan in quarantine. I uploaded one to Avira. Should I just delete the rest from my Quarantine list in Avira. Should I use Eraser, to do so?

    Edit, Oh, OK, thanks. See bold.

    Good on upload. Don't bother with eraser. Normal delete
