It's nothing. No virus or anything. It's a false positive.
How do you know this?
Panda Cloud Antivirus-CLEAN NO INFECTION
Microsoft Security Essentials-CLEAN NO INFECTION
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware-CLEAN NO INFECTION
The fact that the top 3 (in terms of sales & popularity) anti-virus programs (Norton/Symantec, McAfee, and now AVG) cannot seem to recognize a game that has frequent (on average once every 2 weeks) updates as not a virus or malware is why people call them crap.
The fact that AVG does NOT seem to have a way to "un-quarantine" files in its newer version is also a very horrible joke.
The FACT that all 3 of the aforementioned products (Norton/Symantec, McAfee, AVG) each have a larger footprint on system resources on their own than all 3 of the products I named (and personally use and checked the update with today just to be safe) is why people say to dump them.
You want GOOD alternatives:
