could someone please help me out
AVG starts up telling me : trojan horse collect.ae
run AGV, it puts it into virus vault but it is still present.
I have used AIMfix in safe mode but tells me there are no viruses present.
The virus is hiding, so it seems, in your system restore file.
I would suggest that you boot in safe mode, temporarily disable system restore, run AVG and remove the trojan. You will then need to re-enable system restore and set a manual restore point (you will loose prior restore points).
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
