Trojan horse Dialer.6.G

AVG Resident Shield on my XP Pro system has found a virus

Trojan horse Dialer.6.G

It says it's in this program:

C:\System Volume Imformation\_restore{C5A62CCB_FEB2_4CDA_BC00_EA0C4B69}\RP114\A0075287.exe

I then ran AVG for Windows and it couldn't find it. I tried to access the directory myself but when I try to open C:\System Volume Imformation I am told I do not have permission/access.
How can I overide this permission?

Many thanks, Garry.

Turn off System Restore

As above, turn of system restore. The fact that it is in the System Volume Information folder indicates that it has been saved in a restore point. Turning off system restore should automatically delete the Trojan but run AVG again to be sure its not hiding.
