Default Help!!! Trojan Virus Found

AVG Found a Trojan Virus (startpage.4.AL) and instructed me to run a test. After I did, it said it couldn't be removed because it could affect my startup and OS. What do I do?

Here is a link to the Symantec website with some basic removal instructions. I know you don't have Symantec AV but you can do most of the steps to correct your issue.

dont turn off your comp, but if you do try to boot in safe mode and remove it by any means possible. if you cant remove it you may have to resort to reformatting
I wish I had a computer but I am broke!!!
