Have you run AVG with System Restore turned off? Sometimes these little nasties lodge themselves in the sys restore files and the only way to clear them is by turning off sys restore and then run your anti virus. Note that you will lose all restore points!

Try to run CW Shredder, click here . Scroll down to: Epilogue - The Fix Known As CWShredder.

If you disable system restore then you will have no backup. VoG™ has clearly stated in previous posts that it can be a bit dicey to stop sys restore to remove malware.

Anyway if you find that CWshredder gets rid of this malware but after reboot it returns then you'll have to ask VoG how to get rid of it without disabling sys restore. Good luck.

If it is lodged in the sys restore file then AVG can not clean it from there whilst it is active and so the problem pesists. By turning off system restore AVG can then get to work and sort it out. Then all that needs to be don is turn system restore back on and create a new restore point.

Agree with the above advice,though turning off system restore should be the last thing you try.

Firstly try Trojanhunter (trial) click here

Failing the above try an online scan click here

Does AVG actually find this Trojan ?

Also try Ewido now called AVG antispy click here

If these methods fail to remove this nasty,i think its time you follow the basic routine of:

Download and run Hijackthis click here

And post the log click here

You may like to consider trying Prevx

If the Trojan is a new Variant of MCNEW.EXE or similar Prevx may just shift here

So long as your computer is running fine, apart from the trojan that is, then there should be no problem about turning off system restore.
