Today is Friday morning. On 9/10/09 @ 2:41 a.m, only briefly, AVG gave notification of finding a suspicious issue. I have a screenshot, but an looking to figure out how to insert it. AVG Resident Shield said it deleted Trojan Horse Proxy.AHIY. Below is the line item of notification.

"Trojan horse Proxy.AHIY";"C:\Program Files\Google\Google Toolbar\GoogleToolbarUser.exe";"Deleted";"9/10/2009, 2:47:41 AM";"file";"C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe"

Has it been fully removed? How do I get some clarity on the level of disinfection?

Task Manager's Performance tab has much reduced size spikes in CPU usage: from where it was last week in which the spikes would every-so-often jump to 60%; to now maintaining low-grade spikes between 4%-25%.

Please advise.
thanks much!
