whatever file is infected with the trojan delete it.. Trojans do not repliocate and whatever file has the trojan can be deleted to remove it.

Trojan virus

I have AVG and Norton Anti-virus on my computer and I still can't get rid of a trojan horse virus. Everytime I run the program it doesn't find the virus but I am constantly getting a pop up saying that the virus is on my computer and to run my anti-virus software. What's the deal?

Does AVG tell you what trojan it is infected with? and where is the file located?

No, AVG doesn't catch it.
