Disable System Restore. That should clear it, do a scan to be sure. Then re-enable System Restore.

Volume is the MBR on the drive

Sorry woodchip, in XP it is the folder where System Restore sub-folders reside.

OK as you know yours is XP mine is 98, but why can't it see it

  VoG II 20:46 03 Jul 2003

AVG can see it but cannot delete or quarantine because these folders and files are protected within Windows.

Right got you, protected but not protected from the little blighters
