AVG8 Resident Shield problem

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

If I leave my computer for a while, there is often a message from AVG on
screen when I return. It says that threats have been found and identifies on
its infections list:

File name: G:\System Volume
Information\_restore(37280OBD-C45O-4F9O-8D38-116853ACB7F8)\RP787\A0058889.dll
Threat name: Adware Generic3.BKE
Detected on open.

Process Name: C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe
Process ID: 1264

It seems to be targeting an application on my G partition - Download
Accelerator Plus (which it didn't like when I did a system scan yesterday).

There's an option to go to AVG's site for more information but I can't get
any response on 'A0058889.dll' or 'Generic3.BKE'
and a search on 'Generic3' yields 2-year-old information on Generic2

I've twice told AVG to ignore these files but next time I come back to the
machine, it's dug them up again and invited me to remove them.
So what's the problem? And what's the solution?

Thanks
