Does AVG not ask you what you want to do?It does me?I then ask it to fix!!

If AVG wasn't able to remove them, where did it report the location of them? What was the name of the viruses?

Download A2 from here (http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/)
update it before you run it .
That should remove them for you.

Try restarting into safemode, then run AVG again.

Most likely what is happening is that the trojan is being "protected" by Windows. By starting in safemode, the trojan isn't initiated,therefore not protected by windows.

If that doesn't work, you will need to quote where AVG say's it is...eg c:\windows\system\kjhvkjhs.exe

AVG says to start it in safe mode, how do I do that?

After you boot your system press and hold down F8. Select safe mode.

When restarting the PC, after it counts the memory ( Memory check ) , keep pressing F8 key repeatedly , about every half second, till a menu comes up which lists safemode. If you see the windows screen before this menu, then you have missed it.

Another method is to go start-run and enter MSCONFIG
Then click on BOOT.INI tab
Put a tick in the box /safeboot
Restart PC

I would go here and get this http://www.simplysup.com/tremover/ update it then scan.

Or go here as I previously said http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
or run this http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/stinger.exe

See if that knows what it is.

so what did you actually do and where are the virus/trojen actually located ??

btw i like to set it the scan to scan ALL files. by default it dosn't which is not the best :(

Could I also suggest using Ccleaner ( www.ccleaner.com ) in safemode, then try a rescan using AVG.

Thankyou thank you!! CCleaner seems to have got it. I have done a scan with AVG and it seems to have disappeared!!! YAY
