Trojan Startgate.5.BT

I am running XP Professional with AVG and Zone Alarm, both up to date. However, I have picked up a virus, Trojan Horse Startpage.5.BT. I get a splash screen from the AVG Resident Shield saying :-

“Trojan Horse Startpage.5.BT is found in file :- C:\System Volume Information\_restore{25B4F2AD-6FA4-4E64-BE67-C63C8C25615F}\RP37\D0001989.dll
To remove this virus, please run AVG for Windows".

I do and it says no virus found, I have tried an online virus checker from Panda Software and it says virus found and disinfected but it is still there. Any suggestions on how to remove and what exactly does this virus do?

Turn off system restore then run the scan , then turn restore back on.
