I constantly get a window that says
Virus
Trojan horse Dropper.Small.4.AK

is found in file
C:\System Volume
Information\_restore{717DED14-B9DD-4C52-8322-6043B9687C5A}\RP701\A0215748.exe

To remove this virus, please run AVG for Windows

OK

So I run AVG for windows, it finds nothing, and it keeps appearing. Not sure if it is doing any damage, but it probably doesn't belong there, any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi,
"Flush System Restore" (see "How To" below)
Basically turn off System Restore, reboot run a full AVG scan, reboot and turn System Restore back on and create a new Restore Point.
