How do you completely remove the "System Volume Information" Virus? Every time I do a Full Scan with MalwareBytes, it'll scan C:\system volume information\, and Avira will pop up a detection. I always move it to quarantine, but it always comes back... The file is either A0xxxxxx.dll or A0xxxxxx.exe. (x's stand for a number). Any advice?

To clear this out you'll need to purge System Restore. This is done by disabling System Restore, and then re-enabling it.

You can find instructions on how to disable and enable system restore here: Windows XP System Restore Guide or Windows Vista System Restore Guide
