IF you have system restore running, you will need to temporarily disable it. Instructions are generally available in the MS help function of your computer on enabliing/disabling system restore.
Run AVG, it should be able to now take care of the virus it identified.

You onjly need to reset system restore when it says the virus is located in the

driveletter:\system volume information\blahblah

Please run two online virus scans:

Then let us know if its working better and what the scans found.
