Hi,

use the avast Cleaner:

Where exactly is the Virus found ? (full path/folder/filename; see avast's report/log)

also apply all Windowsupdates, or it will reappear again

Boot XP into safe mode and run a full scan with avast, it then should be able to remove the virus. If that doesn't work sechdule a preboot scan with avast.
