This is a general description and may not be the same trojan every time? Is it always found in the same location every time? If you moved it to the chest, open that and check. Could it possibly be a false positive i.e. actually a legitimate program file or is it always found in System Restore?

That`s what I thought and not uncommon. If you are happy with the way your computer is in all other respects I would simply turn off system restore which will delete all restore points and reboot. Run Avast to see if it finds anything. If clear, Reboot the computer and switch System Restore back on, which will create a new manual restore point.
