Message pops up if computer is left inactive for 15 minutes:-

(AVG Resident Shield)

Virus - Trojan Horse Dialer - is found in file

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{C4905B60-19BO-49E2-9C01-0748A89D9322}\RP196\A0022703.exe

To remove this virus, please run AVG for Windows.

This Trojan eludes both AVG and Spybot. The AVG Shield stops it dialling up but I would like to exorcise it from my computer!

Thank you.

Disable System Restore. Run AVG to be sure its gone. Re-enable System Restore.

Once you've done as VoG says, check your firewall situation since these dialler trojans shouldn't get past a properly set up firewall. If you haven't got a firewall, get one, don't rely only on the integral one in XP as it's one way only, Zone Alarm is free and will give you full two way protection if you set internet security to maximum.
