My AVG scan hass picked up a trojan - however i have been unable to delete the infection as it's size is too big! - it did say it has moved it to the vault...

what can i do to get rid of it!?

delete it from the vault, scan again, see if all is clear.

If it is in the virus vault maybe keep it there for a week in case its another False positive from AVG.Then maybe remove it.

1--If your system is running OK,go to system restore and restore to an earlier time before it was infected.

2-- Remove all restore points to stop the trogan hiding and re-infecting your machine.

3--If you have a XP CD, put the CD in the drive - let it show the splash screen then select EXIT.
In the run box enter 'sfc /scannow' without the speech marks. This may clear your system.
Download a2free from EMSI software, that will normally remove most trogans/viruses.
God Luck
