I'm also a very tired idot who first wants to apologize for sending an email with my question. It won't happen again.

I've read the posts on how to get rid of the trojan horse backdoor agent BA and wuold honestly like to give what I read a try but I can't figure out how to move the file from AVG to my desktop.

Also, I've read the FAQ but don't really understand what it is you mean by hijacking and something about hijacker. I'm sorry but I'm not exactly great with computers.

I have run Spybot and AVG. AVG picks the trojan horse file up but Spybot does not.

Thank you for any help.

Why would you want to move the trojan file? If AVG has quarantined/removed it, it is safe.

if not, then try this:-

Please download Hijack this
Copy it into its own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, do Ctrl-A to Select All, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!
