I am running Win xp SP2, and I have this warning come up of a Worm/Krepper.c virus in C:\system volume information.
I have run AVG and Online virus scanners and Adaware, and nothing has shown up

Turn off System Restore to delete restore points and thus remove it. click here

Scan again to make sure it has gone then turn System Restore back on.

I have run Spybot and I have found a DSO Exploit, I cut and copied this to see if it will help you.
Is this anything to do with my problem.

DSO exploit is a bug in Spybot (i.e. a false detection.

I turned off System Restore and restarted my system, does the virus automatically get deleted that way, because AVG does not detect it.

Yes, turning off System Restore deletes all of the restore points, including the virus which was in one of them.

Don't forget to turn System Restore back on.

Thank you for replying, I will keep my eye out for that warning box warning me of the virus.
