    First off backup all files that you want so that just in case! Then if you are willing to take it in to a shop ASAP

    What does AVG detect the Trojan as? Or does it not even detect it at all?

    I suspect the virus is going go onto hiding itself next and then taking down your AV and Internet browser.

    Update your AVG. Update your windoze. OR Do a roll back.. you should have some rollbacks

    Won't do anything unfountaitly. The Trojan could have been on your computer for ages now. Or even several since you said there was a Trojan downloader. I am taking a good guess that this Trojan has almost "rooted" it self into your Av and this is making it undetectable. Just so you know I had to get my computers memory wiped at reinstal windows because of this. I lost every thing. No backups at all. Here is what happened.

    Between a spam of around a month and a half I lost the ability to use all but one Internet browser. Yet I had a good Av so I thought I just messed with some files and screwed them up. But after my Av started not open/run on startup I knew something was wrong. So what I did was try to fix it myself by downloading some other free Avs. Which of course would not run either. I just think the more I dled the worse it got. So after I tried that I just let it be for 2days until I had literaly no control to do anything on my computer. I had to
    run it in safe mode.


    So what I suggest is running your computer in safe mode and backup everything you
    NEED. I say need because you need to stick to the lowest amount of time on the computer. Now you should download a program named malwarebytes which is a free scanning tool. Run that. If you still see problems look up the virus on google and try the fix.

    But to avoid any of this just visit a computer place. You have to
    do what is best for it. You gain more by doing that. The guy at the computer place told me that if I would have come in 1 week earlier I would have had a chance at only loosing some memory and not do a full system restart.

    Also this may not help but it's worth a try is to restore to a system restore point. I would say 1 month back at the least
