Who is Tom? AVG 2011 is not a virus. It is an Antivirus Program.

Just because the OP does not come back in 3 or 4 days to reply, does not mean he will not come back and reply.

Janusz is so right that AVG 2011 is the nastyst VIRUS that I have ever seen.
The same thing just hit me. You can not delete the dir or file.
It pops up a cover screen every time you click on any thing.
If this is not a VIRUS then I do not know what is.
Ok so reinstall of Win 7 did not fix the Windows cannot find C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet iexplore.exe Any good ideas?

I got it fixed. It may not have been 100% AVGs fault. Some malware from Adware.Softomate added a Registry Key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Low Rights\ElevationPolicy\{a078f691-9c07-4af2-bf43-35e79eecf8b7}
And Rogue.Antivirus8 added a file at C:\Windows\System32\iesafmode.exe.
Now for the good news. www.malwarebytes.org or find mbam-setup.exe it found and removed for $0.00 now the may be a one use for free thing. One is all you need if it works.

Have you fix the error yet !!!
I have the same problem with my brothers laptop!!
The only way I have found so far is going into the web Browser program folder and rename the "exe" file then try again.
I renamed my firefox2 and it now works !! although you can not rename IE8 windows "power" also did the same with goggle chrome!!

If you have found the solution please let me know!!
Hope this helps#
