any information on this, I have run avg three times and turned off system restore but it's a stubborn bugger. I only picked it up today and i think it installed a programme as well as a little icon that looks like a bear in my system tray, needless to say I deleted these and emptied the recycle bin etc.

all info welcome

Hi pharte, have you tried leaving system restore off but running AVG in safe mode?

A2, spybot, AVG, safe mode, temp files deleted, system restore off, a combination of plenty restarts and every piece of advice used and tried.
all seems just dandy now,
