A while ago AVG virus checker informed me I had the Swizzor worm and to run the virus scan to remove it. I did and something like 65 files were infected. Ever since I get a message constantly come up saying "Swizzor A found in C:/SystemVolumeInformation\_restore." I have regularly fun AVG since and cannot get rid of this message. A I right in thinking that AVG cannot check the above file as it is locked for some reason and if so how can I get rid of it.

Disable system restore.

if you are runing windows ME or XP turn off system restore do a scan if clear turn system restore on again it sounds very as though the virus is trapped in sys restore

Right click on 'my computer' properties/sytem restore, uncheck the box, restart your computer this is for xp.
