I use AVG free virus scan.. It has found several trojans that it cannot delete or move to the vault. I think they are hidden files "c:\_restore\temp" is where they all seem to live.

I have tried going into DOS prompt and using attrib to unhide the files
"attrib -r -a -s -h c:\_restore".. However every time I do this it tells "access denied".. any help?

The virus is inside one of the System Restore folders. Disable System Restore, reboot, then re-enable System Restore. Run another virus scan and see what it shows.
