Stupid program is obviously making a false positive, thought you'd better know.  Maybe you can contact them to fix it?

They have a support forum here: http://support.avast.com/ do you have a login?

I made a test with virustotal.com.  Only 2 of 40 treating Muon1.exe as suspicious file.  Here are the complete results http://www.virustotal.com/analisis/11cbb7c7f6dde4aa6ab253af09261935

I bet it saw the reference to networking calls (Windows sockets) and thought those were suspicious.

I never said it was muon1, its the benchmark that's getting FPs

Avast have fixed it . [edit] or maybe not, virustotal.com shows avast still flags it as Qukart (as does Gdata).

Oh btw Stephen, to answer your question Avast thought it was Win32:Qukart-Z[Trj]

You had the wrong file analysed, didn't anyone read my post properly?  , it's muon1bench.exe not muon1.exe itself.
