If it's removed by your AV, follow the fix mbr instructions here and you'll be fine.

Why are you running AVG and MS Security essentials? Pick one.

Also, stop browsing / downloading unsafe places. If you are going to browse unsafely, download virtualbox or vmware player and install Ubuntu to a virtualized environment. Do your unsafe browsing from within there.

AVG really isn't a good antivirus.I've had malware get past it before. I personally use a combination of common sense and a monthly MalWareBytes scan. Shaken, not stirred.

Oh yeah, and AVG has essentially in the last 2 years become useless crapware.
