AVG doesnt delete it - It would appear

I have picked up a virus (my fault, just wasnt careful)
At startup I get a warning that the machines is infected and says to get a spyware programme to get rid of it. I have AVG and I have done a scan and it finds various versions of a Trojan.downloader.win32.renos for example. When AVG finishes it says that these trojans are deleted however I reboot and the blue screen comes up and says the systems has been infected and suggests I start windows in safe mode and start AV program. Is there a sure proof way of getting rid of this "pain in the arse" or should I just reformat and start again.??

Did you do the safe mode scan like it suggests?
That should get rid of it.

Plus once in safe mode run disk cleanup and get it to remove all temp files, then turn off system restore and run a full scan of the PC with AVG.
Also download, install, update and run Spybot search and destroy, that should help remove the crap, plus run Spybots immunize feature to help protect IE from some of the nasties getting around.

I ran the machine in safe mode.....Ran AVG, It didnt find anything. I rebooted in normal mode and when "log on to windows" appeared also the following appeared on the screen "WARNING....Spyware detected on your computer. Install an Antivirus or Spyware remover to clean your computer" So obviously there is still something there??
Aliali thansk for the advise I will try your suggestions and hopefully have more luck.
