Friend has Trojan

Friend has trojan.vundo, any ideas on removal please.

he has xp pro and uses Norton.

I have convinced him (right or wrongly) to remove Norton and replace with AVG, should he remove Norton before curing Trojan problem and before installing AVG.

I was always told that an antivirus like Avast/Avg will/cannot get rid of a trojan.

You need a "remover" like suggested or maybe A2

i am not sure about this of course.

avast! virus cleaner is known by Computer Shopper as a rubbish anti-virus, but it is infact quite good. the link i gave in my previous post was incorrect, click here for virus cleaner. also click here for Sophos anti-virus, search for trogan.vundo, and download the removal tool.

vundo is an alias of: Trog/Agent-DO (Named by Sophos, click here) Avast! CAN remove this virus, but i'm not sure about AVG Free.
