I have a virus warning
"virus identified IRC-Worm/Momma"
To remove this virus run AVG
on running AVG it shows in the log that it is healed but the message keeps returning any help would be much appreciated.
The file its found in is
C:\System Volume Information\_restore{3363F1CB-2A7A-454C-8531-588189380056}-\RP67\A0029626.exe

Files in the restore folder cannot be accessed by AV programs - AVG is misleading you when it says it's healed it.

Either you can ignore it, as it cannot infect your system from where it is, and eventually it will get overwritten by new restore points.

OR

You can disable system restore - which will delete the infection also, then re-enable it - which will create a nice fresh restore point, without the infection in it.
