From AVG tech help:
The virus has been found in Temporary Internet Files folder, in the
cache of Internet Exporer. The easiest way how to remove this virus
is to empty Internet Explorer cache.
Please run Internet Explorer, select menu Tools -> Internet Options.
Approximately in the middle of the dialog window is button "Delete
files...". Press this button, check the "Delete all offline content"
option and press OK.
This operation will remove all viruses located in Temporary Internet

I had same trojan from a link. AVG detected it immediately and gave details of it's location, eg. IE Temp Folder. As previously said, empty the folder to remove it.
