"Virus
Trojan horse Dropper.Small.4.AK

is found in file
C:\System Volume Information\_restore{4350A4B8-BA30-4888-134-15E5C600000B}\RP202\A0064405.exe

To remove the virus, please run AVG for Windows"

I run AVG (full scan) and it says no virus found! :S

Help please.

Try running AVG and scanning only that file. If you have the free version, right-click it and select scan. You may need to show all hidden files first.

The message is telling you that a copy of the virus still remains in the System Restore points in Windows ME/Windows XP. AVG is not able to remove it from this location and you will need to disable System Restore and reboot your computer. After rebooting run AVG again then re-enable system restore.

Turn off system restore, then go to the folder manually and delete it. Delete the whole folder if you want to.
