Dialer 7.AS

I am running AVG on a home built ( to a PC Advisor receipe) computer with XP Home installed. Prior to installing the AVG I had a virus attack and had restored to a previous date to get rid of it. The AVG worked fine and ridded almost all the viruses, but it has now found the dialer in a restore file. It reports it as C:\ System Volume Information\_restore{E1A9b *******.exe. It the suggest to run AVG 6.0 for windows, but nothing happens.
I have tried to run the C:\System restore ***. exe but I have been denied access to it as I don't have permission to run it !
Whose computer is it anyway?
Anyone out there with any ideas?

try click here and input in search field Q306084 and also 831829 (no Q prefix)

you need to dissable system restore, reboot pc, which will delete all of your restore points and all info stored in sys/vol/info includeing the virus, turn on system restore.

Sorry not had time to try your suggestions until late the other night . Santos7 was right with his info on shutting down the restore facility and restating it. It cetainly worked.
Thanks once again
