He downloaded "a squared" and when he scanned it he said..... "it did not pick anything up but while i was running it, it came up with the trojans & told me to run avg for windows." Is avg for windows different to avg virus scanner?

As far as I know yes, but if that doesn't solve your problem click here Download and run this progra and turn off system restore before scanning.

try the 30 day trial of Anti-Trojan-Scan (ATS) from click here

download, install and run a full scan on all hard drives. this prog will NOT delete the trojans detected, just tell you where they are on your system.
