I just launched fastpictureviewer basis edition on my PC and my virus scanner (Avast) gave a virus warning: a trojan horse was found, C:\Program Files\FastPictureViewer\FastPictureViewer.Core.exe, Win32:Bifrose-EBJ [Trj] malware type
What should I do?

Report it to Avast. This is a false alarm, probably caused by a bug in their latest virus database update. 19 of 20 antivirus scanners at http://virusscan.jotti.org/ found nothing.

The issue has been resolved after we opened a support ticket with Avast. Their very latest update does not trigger the alarm anymore.
