Hello good folks....My mate, who knows even less about computers than I do I'm afraid has ran a scan with AVG and discovered the following virus. Trojan horse Backdoor,Afcore.AL which cant be removed by AVG. the message is C:\windows\system32\WMGCQSK.EXE can not be removed. Having had a search in Google to see what I could find most of the links refered to one site, this being a forum. The link that seemed to be the most likely way of ridding the system of the virus was this click here but I'm begging your help as I'm kinda reluctant to muck about with the registry....do you good folks reckon this site is the correct way to get it out of the system....it's more of a confidence booster I need I think....once again, thankyou all very much.....Andy PS. the system is windows XP.

Boot into safe mode and rescan again

or

Start Menu, Run, Type MSCONFIG and hit enter. Click on the Start Up Tab and uncheck the line pointing to the C:\windows\system32\WMGCQSK.EXE file. Reboot the PC and scan again.
