My suggestion is to delete the quarantined file and the program that it was found in. Especially if it was a "crack" program.
I would also suggest you run other scans like the one in the link below and allow it to quarantine what ever it finds.

Since you already have AVG antispyware I would suggest running it in safe mode.
If the programs above find malware that they can't remove or you have other reasons to believe you are still infected, please post a Hijack This log in the proper forum by following the instructions in the link below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Backdoor Trojans are very dangerous because they provide a means of accessing a computer system that bypasses security mechanisms. Remote attackers use backdoor Trojans as part of an exploit to to gain unauthorized access to a computer and take control of it without your knowledge. When infected by one of them you should disconnect the computer from the Internet until your system is cleaned. If your computer was used for online banking or has credit card information on it, all passwords should be changed immediately to include those used for email, eBay and forums. You should consider them to be compromised. They should be changed by using a different computer and not the infected one. If not, an attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information. Banking and credit card institutions should be notified of the possible security breech. Because your computer was compromised please read How to report ID theft, fraud, drive-by installs, hijacking and malware.
