Trojan Virus

My antivirus just picked up this trojan:

C:\System Volume Information\_restore{3A06F582-28ED-4FB2-BDF4-D40C5B5C9D80}\RP954\A0198081.exe

I had firefox 2 open on the yahoo page but not responding and this site open in IE7. What does this message mean and where could the virus have come from?

This means that the Trojan has been backed up in your system restore {Volume Information}

If your computer is running OK then you can turn off your system restore to flush out all the restore point then turn it back on again,

You will lose all the restore points but at least you will not get reinfected if you do a system restore
