Yeah, I have done all that and symantec have no info and AVG can't put it in the virus vault. I think it has come from messenger plus that was installed with the sponsor, so he ended up getting all the other crap as well.

You might want to try Spybot & ad-aware & see if it finds any thing

Try booting into safe mode and then running the antivirus software program. If your friend has System Restore enabled, make sure that it is disabled first and then re-enabled after the trojan has been removed.

You could also try the Trojan_Remover (http://www.simplysup.com/tremover/download.html)
