When I go to the path where the virus is suppose to be C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data. There noting with random name. If I boot in to normal noting works. I can run msconfig or regedit or install anything. If run in safe mode with networking I cant install anti virus cuz i get errors while installing.

Go back to safe mode with networking and see if you can download and run "combofix", it will not run with AVG installed, but it will help strip out the virus, then updated and run a full scan with malwarebytes again.

it's important to let combofix update and check for updates on malwarebytes before running does not update automatically except the first time it installs;)

Do not run Combofix with supervision, it may cause more problems if you don't know what you're doing.

Try running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in Safe Mode, see instructions here:
