Hello, I have Windows Xp operating system installed on my computer. But, while working on internet, I come to know that the computer is got infected by the C:\Windows\System32\athihvs.dll virus. And my Antivirus application is detecting that virus, but not able to remove that. I have Avira Antivirus installed on my computer. If you have any solution from which I will able to remove this virus, then please help me to remove that.

You need to make use of the updated files for you AVIRA, so that you will able to remove the virus infected file from your computer. It is required to just update the system antivirus and then you will able to remove the virus file. If you have the updated virus database, then only you will able to remove that file. As the updated antivirus can only able to remove the virus files from your computer.

You have to make use of the safe mode in this case. If you are having problem that your antivirus is detecting the virus infected files, but not able to remove that, then you can use the safe mode and then remove the virus infected file. Just press the F8 key and then select the option of the safe mode. Now scan whole computer with the Antivirus application and then you will able to remove the virus infected file.

Oh yes go ahead and delete it. You'll get rid of the problem... and your WLAN too. The athivhs dynamic link library is not a trojan it's actually the Atheros Independent Vendor Hardware Service which is a key element in connecting to your internet. If you want this to be less buggy, I'm trying something that might work.
Go to Device Manager > network adapters section > right-click device and select properties > power management
uncheck the box that says "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
Other than that, keep your drivers updated.
