click here for Information about the virus and how to remove it from your system.

Thus, the worm removes itself in 2004.

If AVG can't remove it then it's probably stuck in a System Restore Point. To get rid of it from there you'll have to disable System Restore to delete all restore points. You'll get instructions on how to disable System Restore if you click here . Then rescan with AVG and if given the all clear, re-activate System Restore.
