Ok big problem, ton of Trojan horse viruses on my brothers profile on the computer, I'm gonna dump avg so does anyone know anything that's like 10x better? And also how do I at least attempt to get rid of these viruses so I can try backing up stuff? Hopefully I can get some instant feedback.

Scan with HijackThis and PM the results. I know some guys you can HJT logs and tell you what to do.
Note: AVG sucks, get Avira (if he don't wanna pirate it) or Norton 2011 (if he cares less).
When I get done I'll give you more info.

Hijack this or avast.. well avast isn`t all so so effective.
See , don`t download everything you like. Trojans can be harmful ; lucky it wasn`t a RAT or keylogger.
Um , just keep searching , you have TrueCrime here.

Well, you could boot it up in safemode (hold F8 while starting computer) and goto start, run , and type msconfig and press enter. then you can goto the start up and de select things that look suspicious, and then goto services and do the same thing.
And another thing that you could do is download and install avast 4.8 and schedule a boot time scan, that usually cleans teh howse
Hope this helps dude, if it doesn't I'm really sorry
Sorry I came late....
EDIT- You could also go into the registry editor and delete things that look suspicious. ( start, run, regedit, press enter)
