I am running XP, have AVG free edition fully updated and Sygate firewall. AVG picked up the Backdoor Agent virus and couldn't delete it. I didn't affect the machine. Now as soon as I switch on the computer, it restarts itself. I have started it in safe mode, but AVG will not run - driver error. Please help.

the reason avg could not delete it is either it was in a hidden folder in system restore or it corrupted avg on the way in, enable your xp firewall and d/load stinger to a floppy and run it with system restore disabled.
