    Turn off system restore, restart your computer and scan with AVG again.
    Don't forget to turn system restore on after the trojan is gone.

    Windows XP

    1. Right click on the "My Computer" icon on the Windows desktop and click "Properties"
    2. Click on the "System Restore"
    3. Check "Turn off System Restore on all Drives"
    4. Click OK, Close and restart the system
