Getting rid of AVG's "Helpful" features?

I've got a file (completely harmless) that my anti-virus program (AVG) sees as a security threat, and am now unable to open it. Is there any way to fix this?

The file itself is just a mIRC remote scripts file, and it isn't harboring any viruses. I can't actually open it or allow any other programs to read it, although using HijackThis to kill off some of AVG's startup processes allowed me to be able to move/delete the file. Uninstalling AVG isn't really an option since it's not my box, and I'd rather just figure out how to get the program off my back about this, as this isn't the first time AVG has declared this specific file to be a security threat.
