Virus detected - winamp won't start?

Hello everyone

I don't really have a virus problem, because I have many programs protacting me against virusses and spyware. I use avast as my antivirus program. It recently detected a trojan in QUICKTIMESTREAMING.QTX, when I attempted to start winamp. So I let Avast move the virus into quarantine. So far, so good, but when afterwards I tried to start winamp again, it wouldn't start anymore. I tried everything, even reinstalling both winamp and quicktime, but it still won't work.

This is what it says: AppName: winamp.exe AppVer: ModName:quicktimestreamingauthoring.qtx
ModVer: Offset: 00016cb9

I checked it, and "quicktimestreamingauthoring" is still on my computer, but I suppose it has something to do with the other file being quarantined. I can check winamp's report on the error, but I can't make a thing out of it.

For some reason I can't copy the report and paste it here, but it refers also to this file C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\Eva\LOCALSETTINGS\Temp\WER1B4.tmp.dir00\appcompat.txt and I can't find the folder WER1B4.tmp.dir00. Could it have been deleted because I put that file into quarantine?

I know that my explanation may be a bit confusing, but that's because I don't knwo much about computers, and up till now, my antivirus programs never gave me any problems.

So if anyone knows what I have to do to make winamp work again, please tell me!
