Every time I run a virus scan on my desktop (Avast), it comes up with 4 Trojans on my system.

After I delete them all through Avast, I'll run AVG, and it'll find the same 4.

Any ideas on why?

start up your PC in safe mode, then do the virus scan again.

also make sure you have a firewall installed and working before you do the above. also make sure you know what is allowed and what is not allowed thorough the firewall. its also best to actually block everything but only let a few programs have access to the net. things that require internet access all the time. this is because sometimes worm/viruses etc 'hitch a ride' through the firewall on an allowed program.

Download the free version of MalwareBytes Anti-Malware. Run a quick scan, then just follow instructions. Ta-da, no more trojans. It's the best thing I've found for getting rid of them.

No bitch is worth seven years of war. I don't like how everyone says that Helen's beauty started the fighting. Agamemnon just used the outrage of Menelaus's wife(property) being stolen as an excuse to start a war of territorial expansion.

Don't bother booting into safe mode, schedule a boot time scan with avast and reset your computer, Avast will then scan during the boot-up, thus before the trojans have a chance to protect themselves.

Also, have you ruled out the possibility of false-positives?
