Only the option 'Abort connection' is available when avast! detects a virus


Issue:
 avast! states it has found a virus, but it only offers me the choice Abort connection. Why can't I delete this virus?
Details:
 You can't delete this virus as it's not actually on your computer. It is in fact somewhere on the net and was detected by one of the avast! resident providers - Web Shield. This provider scans all files that are downloaded via the Internet (HTTP protocol) before they're saved onto your local disk.
Solution:
 The only action that can be taken is to abort the connection and not allow the virus to download.
