Trojan conhost.exe

September 1, 2011 at 14:28:07
Specs: Windows XP
My anti-virus software (AVG free) keeps putting up a warning saying that there is "Trojan horse Agent_r.AOB" in "c:\WINDOWS\Temp\conhostexe", specifiying the process name "c:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe", and Process ID 460.

The warning pops up about every 4-5 minutes. But when I try to get AVG to deal with it, it says that the object does not exists or is inaccessible. When I look in the Temp folder its not there.

Any help gratefully recieved,

Tatjana.
