Default TR/Trash.Gen how do I get rid of this

My Anti Vir program comes up with this listed as a Trojan nearly every day and I "delete" it &/or "deny access" but it still comes up. It has it listed as being in: C:\System Volume Information . . . . .\A0354469.Exe

Can anyone tell me what to do?

Default Re: TR/Trash.Gen how do I get rid of this

Welcome to Major Geeks!

The only way to remove things from System Restore (and that is what C:\System Volume Information folder really is) is to disable system restore and then re-enable. So do the below:

Disable System Restore ( see Disable And Enable System Restore)
Now reboot your PC
Now Enable System Restore using the same link as above
