personal guard 2009 infection

by stormyrider1 / November 27, 2009 9:29 AM PST

I was infected with this on my desktop which has the AVG antivirous software,windows XP sp3. With the latest updates it would detect this but not get rid of it. I then tried running spybot search and destroy which seemed to get rid of part of it, so I reran AVG which seemed to get rid of the rest of it. But know I cannot connect to the web. I have internet explorer 8, I use a U.S. Robotics USB external modem and i get a 633 error code, that something else is using the modem. Modem is not trying to connect. This same modem works fine on my laptop. I have run all the dianostics I can think of and have been unable to detect what is making explorer think the modem is in use. I could use some suggestions please.
