    Hi julescuk!

    You can pick up trojans by downloading files, clicking links on questionable websites, or from email attachments.

    It would really help to know what OS (operating system) you have. If you have any Windows platform from WinME up to WinXP then to remove the trojan you need to turn off your System Restore and then run AVG in Safemode.

    Turn Off System Restore

    To turn off System Restore, follow these steps:

    Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Click to select the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.
    Click Yes when you receive the prompt to the turn off System Restore.

    Safemode Instructions for All Windows Platforms

    After starting in Safemode, open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK," before proceeding.

    Run AVG and let it cleanup! :D

    Turn On System Restore

    To turn on System Restore, follow these steps:

    Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Click to clear the Turn off System Restore check box (or the Turn off System Restore on all drives check box), and then click OK.

    Please let us know about your results.


    Best regards and welcome to Wilders! :)
