how do I remove this virus?

My AVG full test is showing a virus called Trojan Horse downloader.dyfica.bc

But how do I get AVG to remove it? I have the paid version as opposed to the free version.

It is showing as one infected file in my local settings

Any help appreciated as this is my first ever virus uinfection despite keeping up to date anti virus software, and no idea how it got here!

if running windows ME or XP disable system restore.

run a full scan with avg and delete it.

re enable system restore.

If Huggys method doesn't work - go to the "test results" in AVG and double click on the line which indicates the virus - this will give you the location - you can then manually delete it - or feed the virus name into "Google" and look for a solution there
