System Volume Information folder

Specs: Windows XP pro, 1.86Ghz/2 GB
As there are malware to be removed in my System Volume Information folder, I must access the folder to remove them.

The solution for access, provided by MS is incomplete. It states that once I have provided access to the Hidden Files, etc, I click on Properties & then on the Security Tab. However, there is NO Security tab.

I am running XP Pro SP3. Anyone have a resolution?

System Volume Information Folder

As far as getting rid of the infected files in that folder the normal way is to turn off System Restore, restart the computer then turn on System Restore again. This will purge all of the System Restore files including the virus infected files.

"Make sure that you turn System Restore on again.

The reference to Tufenuf's response is what I was referring to referencing the inability to view the SECURITY tab.

Shortly after placing the post, I removed the Hidden & System File values with Attrib, then the Security tab appeared and I completed the job.

Thanks to all.
