My friend who I am helping got the following pop up after browsing the web (mostly webmail at Verizon). He thought it was a message from his AVG virus scanner which it may be but I found no info about this trojan so it concerned me. In any case, he ran AVG scanner afterward and found nothing other than a few cookies. Should he be concerned and do a more in depth analysis? He is running Windows XP Home SP3.

He wrote down the pop up info as follows (I didn't get to see it):

Accessed file is infected:
Threat Detected

filename: c:\System Volume
Threat name: Trojanhorse DownLoader Agent8PNF
Detected on open
Details: Process Name c:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe

More information on this threat
[Box] Remove threat as Power User

He clicked on 'Remove' but he said it "didn't seem to do anything." To me it looks like a system restore file may be infected. Thanks for any advice and let me know if you need more information.
