For peace of mind I suggest checking that the files in tlpkg/tlperl/bin are
identical to "known good" versions (e.g., copy the files to non-Windows
machine and compare with a freshly downloaded versions there).   You should
be able to
get them directly from CTAN:systems/texlive/tlnet/tlpkg/tlperl/bin/

See: <http://www.avira.com/en/support-threats-description/tid/7815/tlang/en

"In the unlikely occurrence of a false positive we would kindly ask for
your help and send the file to our virus lab using the quarantine
functionality of AntiVirus."

Doing this would be a service to other TL users who might encounter the
same issue.
