Same Two Viruses

Since replacing Norton AV with AVG 6.0 every three or four days it informs me that i have a virus. So I run full check and it comes up with the same 2 viruses which it heals.

Downloader.Keenval.P in file C:\Program Files\Common file\SearchUpgrader\SEARCH~1.EXE

Startpage.12F in C:\WINDOWS\IEXPLORER.EXE

I have tried switching off System Restore then running AVG complete test, but they still return in a few days.
I`ve been blaming the kids up to now but I`m not too sure they are responsible? Strangely in the year that i used Norton it never found any viruses.

Try an upgrade to AVG 7.0 it cleared out my viruses.

Thanks both,did a google search and found a lot of finger pointing at Kazza which i wasn`t aware was on my pc, anyhow it isn`t on anymore, so I`ll just wait and see if they reappear in a few days.
