I couldn't find anything about it. What did you use to scan with? Can you get to it? You shouldn't. The security/permissions should deny anything from entering/leaving the system information folder.

To set permissions to get to it:
Click Start, and then click My Computer.
On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
On the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders.
Clear the Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the change.
Clear the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box.
Click OK.
Right-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder, and then click Properties.
Click the Security tab.
Click Add, and then type the name of the user to whom you want to give access to the folder. Typically, this is the account with which you are logged on. Click OK, and then click OK.
Double-click the System Volume Information folder in the root folder to open it.

NOTE: The System Volume Information folder is now accessible in normal mode to users of Windows XP Home Edition
To deny access, just do the opposite.

Ordinarily, Google shows the option to have the foreign language page translated for you. It is not perfect, but it works.

Glad you got cleaned up.

Ok...there seem to be alot of variants to this one, but risk is low.
Follow the instructions in the links posted in the post below first, then try to run ad aware and or spy bot search and destroy.

Also make sure your anti virus is up.to date. You could try avg anti virus.

Once you get everything updated,turn off your system restore, reboot in safe mode, and do complete and thorough Scan with everything.
