    Did it find the same anywhere else? If its only in C:\System Volume Information then I dont think you need to do anything as those files are only for System Restore.

    Can you also give the full name of the malware (SPYW_<Insert name>)

    I think this thread should be moved too...

    Hi Maddawgz, welcome to Wilders. As your post is in regards to a virus, I have moved it in to the appropriate forum where you should recieve a better response.

    Cheers

    Blackspear.

    You shouldn't, it'll come back.

    Disable SR > reboot > enable SR and will create an initial clean restore point.
