But what remained behind kept bugging me, I kept on checking the msconfig file for the start up on XP, 2 files kept rearing their ugly heads algg.exe and bolivar22.exe both of which pertained to the main trojan/virus. I searched everywhere to rid these files for good but it took me a week to find this site and to get rid of algg.exe and bolivar22.exe. I also tried registry cleaners which I thought it worked but when I rebooted they both showed up again, untill I used the SDFix program and tutorial. This got rid of both buried files in the system32 folder of XP thereby helping me to eliminate the 2 files showing up in the start up section of msconfig.
Now the laptop is clean with AVG and a host of other spyware cleaners.
Moral of this srory is neither my friend nor his wife had any AV's whatsoever on their machines. My friend has Vista home and his wife has Win XP home.
I hope I put this topic in the right place ;)
