hi guys, i during a scan with my free avg virus scan software it found this irc/
it was in asa.dbx in my folder, windows/security/templates/asa

It promtly repaired/deleted it and said everything was fine. i ran a few other virus scans with panda and trend micro and they said i was clean, but i used the great website to upload the things in my windows/security/templates/asa folder to check and here is what it found when i uploaded the file sman.dbx

Service load: 0% 100%

File: sman.dbx
Status: INFECTED/MALWARE (Note: this file has been scanned before. Therefore, this file's scan results will not be stored in the database) (Note: only non-destructive malware has been found. Considering the non-destructive nature of samples like these - although they can be a pain in the *** -, results will not be stored in the database.)

AntiVir No viruses found (0.36 seconds taken)
Avast No viruses found (3.01 seconds taken)
BitDefender Backdoor.Ibounce.A (0.46 seconds taken)
ClamAV No viruses found (0.40 seconds taken)

mks_vir Win32.4 (probable variant) (0.33 seconds taken)
NOD32 No viruses found (0.45 seconds taken)
Norman Virus Control No viruses found (0.90 seconds taken)

I am confused by this, is it a virus or not? can i delete it or do i need this file, do i even need the asa folder in the first place?

here is my hijack this log
