This thing has been bugging me for a long time now. Avira Antivirus cannot detect it when I scan but when Ad Aware scans, Avira detects it.

The problem is that when I delete it with Avira (since it iss the only thing that can detect it), the message just keeps coming back that the worm is still there...

I cant see all of the file name because I think it is to long...

I can only see " C:\System Volume Information\...\A0128528.vbs Contains detection pattern of the worm WORM/Solow.B.23" That is the detection message of Avira.

The last path Ad-Aware was on is also not entirely seen... it just says "Current Path: ...ore{094F641E-AC99-4B64-AF9F-F3B516196E61}\RP931"

"Current Object: A0128506.ini"

Please help...

The file(s) identified by your scan are in the System Volume Information Folder (SVI) which is a part of System Restore. This is the feature that allows you to set points in time to roll back your computer to a clean working state. The SIV folder is protected by permissions that only allow the system to have access and is hidden by default unless you have reconfigured Windows to show it.

Keep in mind that System Restore will back up the good as well as the bad files so when malware is present on the system it gets included in any restore points. When you scan your system with anti-virus or anti-malware tools, you may receive an alert or notification that a virus was found in the System Volume Information folder (System Restore points) but the anti-virus software was unable to remove it. Since the System Volume Information folder is a protected directory, your tools cannot access it to delete these files and they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point.

To fix this, you need to Create a New Restore Point to enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state and use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recent restore point.
