Winamp gives me viruses.

Yeah, so Ive been using winamp for a little while and every once in awhile I get viruses.
Got Winamp officialy when 5.581 came out.

I only get them when I open winamp. Ive even put Winamp on blocked on my firewall and I still get some.

Heres a pic

What do I do?

But your screenshot ist saying, that the virus wasn't found in winamp.
Instead, it was found in the master boot record of your hard drive.
You should find it with a full scan by avira, independent of winamp.
