    Take a look at this thread...

    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=17400

    The "c:\system volume information\restore..." folder is a part of the "System Restore" facility, a secured area run by Windows XP and used to allow you to return your system to a previous state should anything go wrong with it.

    Take a look at the thread link above and follow the instructions to clean out the System Restore area by turning it off and back on again. This will remove the piece of malware that got trapped in that folder which will stop those alerts.
