There is a removal tool, if you click here you can download it. Remember to turn off System Restore (if you have it) before running the tool, re-activate System Restore and create a new clean restore point when your system has been cleaned.

I have downloading the removal tool and it has cleaned the system and reg files. So I am re-running AVG to be sure. I shall let you know...thanks so much everyone.

Doh AVG still finds the virus....back to sqaure 1.

Did you turn off System Restore, AMD 4 ever? Where is AVG saying it is? Check it's not in the virus vault, although it shouldn't detect it in there.

It's ok, It found them and cured it by healing the it is now removed from my system, a re-run has confirmed no infection. So a big thanks. cheers maj.
