Unlike viruses, trojan horse dont replicate themselves within the system. They do gain access to your system by disguising themselves as benign software or files. The name came from the trojan horse of Troy which was disguised as a token of respect and honor from their enemies and instead contain destructive forces within. Typically a trojan works from within and opens the system up to more destructive viruses and worms.

AVG is doing its job and you maybe safe. I prefer to see that backed up with another scan from another source. I would run MalwareBytes or at least an online scan from another AV such as ESET scan:
