Downloaded and ran no trojan virus detected.

Will system restore do any good ? I also have a drive image copy on drive G as back up, would this be infected as well or is it just a case of reverting back to thatto rid it.

Just got to take the wife shopping now will be back later to have another look

Thannks again for all replies. Zebby

I have just done system restore to 4 days ago and when it rebooted virus detected came up and run avg . I did this and avg found the virus and healed it yet before system restore it could not heal or remove it. Anbody any idea why.

I will now tick this as resolved but i do not no how.

May be it was in the system folder which AVG nor any anti-virus can access.

You need to wipe all your system restore points and that could be where the virus was located.
