I'm running XPpro SP2 (fully updated)

I have not been able to do a system restore in a long time. I get through the restore process and then get a message that it cannot restore. More recently, my antivirus and antispyware programs are hanging up on the file C:\system\volume information\tracking.log. Spyware Doctor stopped on this file and then ceased to respond. Counterspy stopped mid stream also and also went into a "not responding" condition although it did not tell me what caused it. Kaspersky 6.0 also will not complete a scan and I suspect it is hanging on the same file.

This file is corrupt and I would like to delete it. However, the windows explorer that used to have an option to show system files no longer does and I can't get to it in order to accomplish that.

Does anyone have any suggestions for solving this problem?

Look in the Event Viewer located in the Administrative Tools in the Control Panel. List the 4 most recent error messages.
