XP system volume information, cannot delete restore points

AE_JB asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
AVG resident shield keeps popping up with possible infection in the files within system volume information folder.  I turned off system restore and restarted.  My understanding is that this will delete the restore points.  I then turned system restore back on and created a new restore point.  The problem persists with possible infection popups.  I was going to manually delete the files but the folder is locked.
