Anybody out there can please help me (and my friends). Their computer appears to be locked up following the Windows XP bootup, no programmes will run. AVG indicates the above Trojan and also makes reference to to a few infected file locations, e.g. c:Windows\System32\realupd.exe + others. But, as everything is locked up I couldn't get their AVG to run. Tried using an AVG rescue disk set up from my system (Win 98)but it does't find the file. Do they have to re-format to resolve this?

Well,
after many attempts of various kinds following all tips and tricks I could find, including safe mode ended up with old blunt instrument of a re-format to get risd of the problem, but thanks for the advice Stallion, at least we tried.
