I would have posted this in direct reply to the person asking about it in the HJT forum but couldn't. AVG decided that WinAmp was infected today. This is a false positive and can be ignored. AVG know about it and are working on a fix. This was posted in the WinAmp forums today to work around it:
You can read the full thread here.WinAmp said:Temporary solution (until AVG fixes their virus definitions):
1. Re-install latest version of Winamp.
2. Right-click AVG icon in lower-right corner of screen.
3. Click Open AVG User Interface.
4. Click the Tools menu, then click Advanced Settings.
5. Click Exceptions under the Resident Shield section.
6. Click Add Path.
7. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Winamp (or the path where you've installed Winamp)
8. Click OK.
9. Click OK.
10. Run Winamp.
