Some virus scanners analising php/html code to find possible viruses/danger code. Usually there isn't any virus, however somtimes some files on your site could be infected, example: http://www.prelovac.com/vladimir/warning-website-virus-attack .Do you have any log generated by this antivirus? It would be helpfull.

The last page that got hacked that i worked on, they modified the .htaccess and index.php/html and put redirect in there to the true virus site. The virus was never on the hacked site.

make sure you have secure passwords and if you do you probably have a bug in a script. The site i worked on was a bug in Joomla 1.0 to gain access.

Make sure you are running the latest version of any scripts or CMS.

at first, change all you application, system and FTP passwords.
analyse ftp logs: most problem is unsecured ftp clients, which save passwords in plain text. Often this user click "save pw" and local workstation viruses found it.
look and analyse .htaccess files for rewrites, delete or fix necessary lines.
after analysis of logs, your will see which info was changed. For example, most viruses add own body as <IFrame> directly in the end of php files. If you'll find it, simple delete with text editor, preserving php code structure.
