I've just done a "thorough scan" with Avast! 4.8 and, after a few hours, it gave my laptop (XP Pro) a completely clean bill of health.

I've also just put an Acronis Image of my system on an external hard drive. When I do an Avast! "thorough scan" of this external hard drive it tells me that I have the Hupigon-ONX Trojan in the 21GB Acronis file (.tib) containing the image. Doing a standard scan doesn't detect this Trojan.

I've done some googling without much clarification. I wonder if it is a false positive? It's strange that the Trojan seems to be being introduced by the Acronis imaging. Does anyone know anything about this Trojan or got any ideas?

Have you tried the Acronis forum here (http://forum.acronis.com/)

Could be a false + (http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=57768.30). The same trojan, but they're using Ghost, and drive image xml

Thanks for that. Yes, Google had directed me to those links. And I had tried a recommended solution - defragmentation of the drive, but that didn't work for me. I think I'll just have to hope that it is indeed a false positive...
