Trojan Horse Dropper virus

I keep getting a message -
"Trojan Horse Dropper Pecadrop B in c\Ssystem Volume Information\-restore etc etc etc.
To remove please run AVG for Windows"

I run a full test on AVG but it doesn't find a virus or an infected file.
Do I contact AVG?

It is in a Restore Point.

Turn off System Restore, run AVG just to be sure, then re-enable System Restore click here

No - the intruder is in the System Restore files which are system protected and therefore cannot be acted upon by Anti-virus.

You need to disable System Restore which will flush them out and then re-enable it. Note, you wiil lose restore points in this process but easy come,easy go.
