Hi there, I downloaded a free download yesterday and found out with it was a virus called, adware.burnfree.b and even though I ran my bit defeder it could not disinfect, and although I know how to remove I am having trouble finding the area? could you please help. The area in question is c:\system volume information\-restore etc;

Do you mean C:/Windows/System32/Restore found by clicking on My Computer?

Or, probably more likely ... click here

turn off system restore do a malware scan
reboot machine
malware scan again
turn restore back on create a restore point

most malware tries to make an entry in system restore

Hi again, thanks for the info but I have managed to run bit def 3 times and it finally removed the virus.
Thanks again
