  1. Run malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware and see if they pick anything up.
  2. well avg deleted it so what can they find
  3. Well AVG is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Its recommended to use malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware!
  4. Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware is specifically made for spyware and detects things Anti Virus may miss. Run a good rootkit detector as well http://www.windowsreference.com/security/list-of-free-anti-rootkitrootkit-detection-software-for-windows/ There.are more besides this list
  5. faXcooL.exe is a Hack tool used for disabling Windows Genuine Advantage Checks, it is what they call a "Remove WAT" tool, if your computer found this, either you installed a pirated version of Windows or whoever installed Windows on your computer used a pirated copy. Or you or someone downloaded the tool to Remove WAT, or you downloaded it on accident, either way it's not going to harm your computer, just don't run it if you have a legit copy of windows.
