The System Volume Information folder is a part of System Restore - the tool that allows you to set points in time to roll back your computer. The System Volume Information folder is where XP stores these System Restore points and other information such as: Distributed Link Tracking Service databases for repairing your shortcuts and linked documents; Content Indexing Service databases for fast file searches; Information used by the Volume Snapshot Service (also known as "Volume Shadow Copy") so you can back up files on a live system.

If the scan is only showing the malware in System Restore, then SET A NEW RESTORE POINT and purge the old ones. This will also prevent reinfection from these old restore points. The easiest and safest way to set a new RESTORE POINT:
1. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
2. Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
3. Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
4. Click "OK".
5. Click the "More Options" Tab.
6. Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

When done, rescan again to make sure it is completely gone.
